As the week winds down, we wind down with some tidbits for your information, education, health, and enjoyment.
Quote of the Week: Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition. Timothy Leary
Humor Break: Little known fact about Compensation Practices: Your pay raise is just large enough to increase your taxes and just small enough to have no effect on your take-home pay.
Stat of the Week: Men are 94% more likely than women to seek jobs in which competition with coworkers affects pay rates, a preference that might help explain persistent pay differences between men and women, a study at the University of Chicago shows.
Action Tip: Unhappy with your pay? Volunteer somewhere. All volunteers get paid the same.
