You would think in 2011, salaries would be equal in regards to seniority and job performance; however, I just found out through the proverbial grapevine that I am at the bottom of the pay scale with my coworkers. Keep in mind in seniority, I rank somewhere in the middle. How about one study that was just in the news regarding MDs salaries and the disparity between male and female? In fact, the analysis of starting salaries for more than 8,000 physicians found that the pay gap between men and women increased almost fivefold -- from $3,600 in 1999 to $16,819 in 2008. In other words, it isn't improving. The gap is getting bigger.
Who would have thought?
