Women get paid less than men. It’s a fact. Part of the wage gap has been attributed to the fact that women don’t feel comfortable negotiating. There is some level of truth in that. According to a study done by Glassdoor, only 32% of women negotiate their initial salary with an employer compared to 48% of men. But do women have justification for being more hesitant? Unfortunately, the answer is yes. In Glassdoor’s ...

Anyone who has ever moved before knows exactly how stressful it is. The idea of having to put all your belongings into boxes is daunting and requires a lot of preparation. Hiring a moving company, deciding which things you don’t want to pack, packing your things securely into boxes, and everything in between needs to be done to pull off a successful move. However, having your belongings loaded onto the ...

Back in April, I participated in the March for Science here in Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh is a city that has seen the very real and harsh effects of being irresponsible stewards of our environment. Our mills–which built Carnegie’s wealth and later his repentant philanthropic legacy–almost destroyed our region. A mixture of EPA regulations and globalization leading to the weakening of labor unions eventually shut down our mills, and the city did a ...

As conference season inches closer, I’m realizing that I really need to start planning my travel itinerary now. While I have flights and hotels booked, I haven’t cemented what, exactly, I’ll be doing once I hit the ground at FinCon this year. So I started planning a couple of lunches. I blocked off time for specific events I know I have to participate in. I also started planning exploratory trips into the ...

Aspiring musicians, and oftentimes their parents, find themselves asking, “Why are music lessons so expensive?” Many do not realize that music teachers are usually self employed and have to take their own expenses into account. Teachers also factor in the time they prepare for each student, including travel. Music teachers want to give their students the best experience possible and the best chance of reaching their goals-which is worth every penny. Understanding ...

A few months back, we took a road trip down to Florida. We were going to a wedding, and a family member had gifted us a week at their timeshare in Orlando as a Christmas present. We couldn’t have gotten out of going to Disney if we wanted to. Of course, we wanted to go. It’s just an expensive trip, so it’s not likely one we would have made on our ...

Tomorrow is Women’s Equality Day–a day on which we celebrate the passing of the 19th amendment, which gave women the right to vote. However, women’s suffragist movements were not as valiant in their moral victories as we like to remember. The movement rode on the coat tails of the Abolitionist movement, while also using white supremacy as the reason white women needed the right to vote. The argument was if black men ...

It’s been an interesting couple of years for our finances. I’ve essentially switched career fields. Income has gone up, but is variable. My family’s needs have changed as my children get older. Oh, and I’ve racked up what looks like consumer debt. It makes me sick to my stomach. I hate debt unless it can be leveraged to make more money. And now I’m sitting in the thick of it. Appearances Can Be ...

It may seem like saving money on stuff automatically requires major sacrifices. But, as you’ll soon see, there are simple things you can do to spend less without feeling you’re missing out. Try Samples Before Buying Full-Sized Items Many people are so concerned with prices that they scoop up products they’ve never tried before, just because the prices are so low. That may seem like a good idea at first, but imagine ...
