Meeting Notes

Meeting Notes is a weekly feature. Here we will dish on tidbits, news, and important things we thinking Working Girls should know. So scroll down to hear what we think you should glean from this work week.

  • A new study published by the American Sociological Society shows that working women still do most of the housework, care-giving and are more likely than men to quit their jobs. The study showed that if husbands work more than 60 hours a week, their wives are more likely to leave their careers. [ABC News]
  • Kelly Cutrone of People's Revolution and The Hills/The City fame, recently admitted that while her assistants might only make around $30,000 a year, she says they can go up to $50,000 a year, $75,000 in tow, and $150,000 in four-five years. Now that's a gig I need! [NY Mag]
  • Corporate Responsibility magazine recently announced a black list of the worst companies. On the list: Abercrombie & Fitch, Scripps Networks Interactive, and Weight Watchers. [New York Times]
  • Despite concerns of privacy, the Navy has decided that women are finally going to be able to serve in submarines. [Fox News]
And as a side note, I'd like to give a shout out to my bff's from college. Cinco do Mayo holds some awesome memories for us and I miss my ladies (and college) dearly!
