On average, women in Massachusetts earn 83 cents on the 1 dollar compared to men. Here are 4 things to keep in mind when negotiating your salary.
- Pick a salary range. Research what similar jobs make in your area.
- Remember to negotiate benefits: vacation time and health care.
- Know your rights. As of July 2018, employers can’t ask about your salary history.
- Do what’s comfortable. If negotiating in person makes you nervous, you can always follow up later.
