Default Rock... meet hard place!

I struggle with this information in a couple different ways:

1. Iíve ALWAYS believed that what other people get paid is their business. Period. Until now, when I find out the difference.
2. I was never offered a chance to this position, which I am more qualified for.
3. In the past, if Iím in someoneís office that may have confidential information, I just donít look. I donít want to know more than I am supposed to. That is also why if I see something laying around that at 1st glance could be confidential I make sure I get it to someone who wouldnít be affected by any confidential information. Iíve worked in offices for some time now where I can hear stuff or see stuff that isnít meant for me, and I try not to put myself in a position where I have information I shouldnít so that I have no chance of spilling confidential info accidently.
4. The way I received this information was a HUGE error in our HR dept. and if I say anything, it could affect her job or her credit greatly, and I just donít want to be that person. BUTÖ I could so benefit from this knowledge.
5. I love my job, love the company I work for, enjoy coming to work every dayÖ until now. Itís killing me to know that I work my but off, go above & beyond my ďjob descriptionĒ, and someone comes in and gets compensated substantially more than I do. Especially when I am more qualified! This has happened before so I donít know if itís just me, because Iím fat & unattractive, because I donít advocate for myself, or just so stupid that I canít demand more.

I sit at my desk holding back tears almost all day. Iím not mad at the girl they hired, and I donít think Iím actually mad at my company. Iím just disappointed that they think Iím not worth as much as someone else, and disappointed in myself for not being able to stand up & say something 

You have to stand up for yourself because NO ONE ELSE WILL!!!!!!!!

I would bring in to her attention that she inadvertently allowed you to gain this knowledge... and also let her know that you are going to say something...
this gives her the opportunity to cover her ass if possible.... (any way at all to bring this up without her being involved?)

YOU DESERVE THE MONEY. Stop underestimating yourself missy!! If you dont stand up now, it will eat away at you forever.... you'll always think "what if"


and sassy is right, you are worth WAY more than that to us, and to that adorable boy of yours!!!! ♥

Yes, everyone above is right. Go get it, you must.

Secondly Lisa seriously... you are so loved by so many. This "fat and unattractive" thing... STOP IT. You are undermining yourself and you are seeing things that aren't there. You are being self destructive and you are the ONLY one that thinks that way. Are there assholes out there that say shit for their own kicks? Sure. Don't mind the language here but FUCK THEM. They don't matter, and they KNOW IT, otherwise they wouldn't feel the need to put others down to make themselves feel better. You have no idea how much you are worth to all of us and those around you. You are beautiful you, period.

So I said something to the HR gal... and she was not the one that sent out the PTO reports :/

Which means it was our controller/office manager who is my direct boss. I don't know where it will go from there.

I've done some research & asking for more based on someone else's pay is not a very good strategy, lol... also, my dad helped me put it in another perspective. They didn't take anything from me. I'm making less than her, but I'm not making any less than I was before I found out this information. She could have very well negotiated her wages, when I did not... I was just thankful for a job & love the company I am working for regardless.

Some other things I also did not consider when I 1st learned of our wage difference, they are working with me so that I can finish my degree. When I am done with school, they have offered to reimburse me for part of my schooling, and my position here will change because of it. That's a benefit she does not have.

It sounds like your company is trying to take care of you, just not in a way that shows today. Not many companies would work with you regarding school OR offer to pay for any of it. But if you treat it as the learning experience it can be, you will fight for yourself the next time raises are discussed.

You're a pretty terrific person and I'd bet the people you work with know that.
