Equal Pay Day

Today is equal pay day.  This is the day that a woman has to work up to, on average, in addition to last year in order to earn equal the pay of a man for last year.

Stats like this cloud the picture.  Nobody should earn more or less just because they are a man or a woman of course, but everyone in recruiting knows that hiring managers aren’t focused on gender.  They are focused on value.  Many people argue that it should be equal pay for equal work, but it’s not about equal work.  It’s about equal value.

If everyone provided equal value for the same amount of work then there would be no need for recruiting.  Try telling a hiring manager who has a critical position to fill that every candidate provides the same value.
