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.
  • Want to earn more over your lifetime than other people in the US? Then move to NYC. A recent study conducted by NYC's comptroller's office estimated that a female college graduate will earn more than $184,000 than their peers in the rest of the country. [New York Times]
  • Abercrombie & Fitch employees are annoyed by a new policy that requires them to work six hours instead of five before getting a half-hour break. For someone who worked holiday hours at The Gap - let me tell you, this new policy sucks. [NY Mag]
  • New census data from 2002-2007 showed that women-owned businesses had the "largest numerical increase...up 1.3 million, to a total of 7.8 million." By 2007, women owned almost one in three businesses in the US. [Jezebel]

It is one thing to look at salaries, but I wonder if they factored in the cost of living as well.

Across United states, the local cost of living varies dramatically. In some cities, the cost of living can be expensive and you may require more than one wage-earner to have the standard of living you want.
