female salaries - page 2

I am attempting to do research on female salaries to prove how they are still underpaid in virtually all sectors of the workplace and many places I ask, I get the old "it's none of your business"... Read More

    I am not sure where you are going with this monyresearch? Can you tell us more about your study. There is already so much good research and data out there about female salaries and we already have legislature that was suppose to remedy this type of discrimination. Don't forget the Equal Pay Act of 1963.

    I'm sorry gang, but I would like to ask you all a question? Who is
    "monyresearch" is she a nurse? is she a detective, is she a government spy, or maybe just someone registered here to do research for Hospital Administration maybe. I find it difficult to
    answer these types of questions to anyone, let alone someone who gives very little information about themselves, but expects me to be Open with them. Check out monyresearch's Profile!
    Nuff Said

    My name is David Andrews. I studied Human resources management in school and found it strange when my professors would brush off the subject when I would ask them and although there are "equal pay acts" in place they obviously aren't being enforced very well as there are still many females that feel as though they are being paid unfairly not just nurses but in all sectors and I was hoping to help not cause trouble. Didn't know I was going to be accused of wild doings for forgetting to fill in the profile. I go and do it now if someone can tell me how to get to the screen where I can edit it. Nothing will change if people sit back and do nothing. Fair enough?

    At the top of every page there is a "user cp" button. It is right next to the "Allnurses.com Bulletin Boards" sign. When you click on it you will be able to edit your profile.

    Thanks Traci, OK, all amended. sorry if I stepped on anyone's toes. it was just while searching the web I found it so friendly an atmosphere how open those people were (that took part in the "How much do you make" thread) about their salaries and it seemed like a good place to start my mission. If I'm wrong, I'm sorry and I won't be posting here again. I was just hoping to get some feedback from females that are open about this and have had such unfortunate occurances in their working life and I though by getting some background info on thier particular cases that this would be a start for "digging points" if nothing else and anyone that does wish to join forces on this thing, please do e mail me. Those who disagree with our mission of equality, I'm sorry we disagree and I won't bother you anymore. OK? Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from some of you soon.

    Part of the difference could be from so many women delaying the start of their career to take care of family thus giving the "average" man more years of experience and more $.

    Just a thought.

    I hope you don't go away David. We could use a person with a human resources management background to help us with HR issues that come up. Also, I admire your concern and interest in this area.
