Women are still making less money than men for the same jobs, but now there’s a new state effort to close the gap.
State Treasurer Deb Goldberg has announced the fall dates and locations of “Just Ask!”, Massachusetts’ first state-wide program to offer salary negotiation workshops. The program provides women with the tools they need to overcome the negative impacts of wage inequality.
“Just Ask!” is being hosted at various Community Colleges around the state, through December 6, including Thursday at Holyoke Community College from 11:30 A.M. to 1:30 P.M.
These two-hour-long trainings empower women to close their personal pay gaps, and earn their market-value through salary negotiation.
