#MoneyMondays Battle Of The Cents “Asking For The Salary You Deserve” … By Nthabiseng Komane

“If you pay peanuts, you get monkeys”

`That awkward moment you want to find out what your fellow colleague earns! I actually think its not about what anyone else earns but what you don’t earn!

We stay in jobs that are not financially rewarding and we claim “its not about the cash” but “how I’m treated”(The Statistician General released a report on National Gender Equity that found that, while the gap is closing, poorly-paid women are still most at risk of poverty and violence) well here is a newsflash suckers! It is about the cash *And you’ve just been outplayed* and here is another one, the corporate world is a lot like survivor, outwit, outplay and outlast! *And with your meagre earnings you are not doing any of that* Why do you think they advertise a job with a certain figure and when you get there they still want to negotiate? For fun? *snickers and rolls eyes* (A World Economic Forum Gender Gap Report for 2013 noted that South African women earned up to 33% less than their male counterparts for the same work. The current international pay gap average is 13%)

Okay, before I lose focus……what I’m I getting @ here? Do research! Learn your value and go into that jungle ready to outwit, outplay and outlast! IT IS ABOUT THE CASH! Don’t be fooled *anyway, you’ll remember me when you making ends meet and unable to pay your rent*
