I work in a small office of a larger organization. All in my office are women 50+. I like my work, but am made to feel that I don’t deserve wages that I am offered in other areas….even though I feel the education I have makes me a more valuable employee….my supervisor doesn’t convey that my education is worth anymore in my job although I know differently. I like my job, but I also feel like I’m slighted by it.

    I’m a little unclear on a couple of things.

    Are you not being paid what you feel you should or could be earning?
    Are you not being promoted or offered other opportunities to excel?
    Or is your supervisor just putting negative energy on you so you don’t get any such upwardly-directed ideas?

    I’m at a bit of a loss without fully understanding the issue, but it certainly sounds like you have some rightful concerns that are sapping enjoyment out of what could be a nice win-win situation for you and your employer. I wonder what a renewed sprucing up of self-respect and then a friendly but direct talk with your supervisor might do to improve things for everyone.

    Good luck!
