I was at an event last night held by New York Women In Communications—they are a great group. Mika Brzezinski of “Morning Joe” (left) was there speaking about her book, Knowing Your Value.
Bottom line—you deserve equal pay to men and if you don’t ask for it, you won’t get it. Mika says you have to realize what your worth and what value you bring to the table. You have to find out what men are getting paid for doing the same job, and if there is a discrepancy, don’t take it.
Mika was confident with her message. Definitely food for thought.
