I was watching 9 to 5 the other night and there was a comment at the end about equal pay was going way too far. And I thought we've come a long way since then....... And then today, I got shown that NO, we haven't come a long way at all. Two years ago I worked a HUGE project at work. It was supposed to be a 5 person job and no one wanted to do it. So I did it basically alone. I had to have the warehouse guys move the heavy things around (don't have a forklift license). Anyways, it turns out that this job was a HUGE DEAL! All the bosses up the line to the very top got kudos for a job well done. And I got a minor thank you. And now the government guys got kudos too. So, my boss wanted to know who helped and what they did.... told him about the forklift moves. Well, now that men are involved with the project, we got a cash bonus. I'm grateful for the bonus, it helps pay the bills. But it totally hoovers that it took MEN being involved before a bonus happened. stepping off now. Thanks for letting me vent.
