Funny, I didn't need an article to tell me that being a doctor, medical scientist, or lawyer ranks higher than "daily blogger for a weekly Seattle newspaper" in terms of salary, job security, and career growth.
According to the Society for Human Resource Management’s annual employee satisfaction survey, women rank the top contributors to their job satisfaction as: opportunities to use their skills and abilities (65%), job security (64%), communication between employees and senior management (61%) and compensation. As a comparison, men place slightly more importance on pay and also list the work itself as a leading contributor.
Maybe that's why women are still only making on average 82 percent of what their male counterparts earn? JK! It's because women belong in the home.
