Advice on How To Negotiate Higher Pay

And what are your bullet points to negotiating?

Reading a feminist’s conversation with a reporter led me to some good advice the other day. Sure, it’s for the ladies, but the principles apply to everyone. Everyone can benefit from it.

I think most folks are underpaid and overworked. Perhaps the idea of negotiating your salary will help. They certainly don’t teach this in high school. But they should.
