Are Women Still Being Paid Less In The Legal Profession?
Turns out, the paralegals and lit support women are in just about the best posture within legal: because the news is far worse about our industry as a whole. The census figures reveal even more grim statistics: across the board, our women are earning 51% of what our men earn.
FIFTY ONE PERCENT!!!!! Why? One big reason appears to be that too many women don't negotiate effectively, and often take the initial salary offered to them without countering.
