my colleague has been with the company for two years, makes 1/4 of what I make for the same job, same title, Same duties, same workload, and I started last week… she’s not happy.
she and I are pretty decent friends, like, she’s a funny girl that likes dog, and I’m just a dude that also likes dog, so, we made fast friends and she’s into the same nerd shit as me, hence why we work a similar job.
I say this so that when I say she was at my house early this morning.
It was 2 am, she was in my house, we were several drinks into a hangout, our friends were talking about the housing market, we started talking about work. She says my house is nice for a dude that works at (insert satanic corporation) and I joke, lightly, “it’s not bad for $75k a year”.
her eyes sunk into a sorta disgusted, kinda pissed look
She asked me if I have two jobs or invest.
I said I invest but it’s all for retirement or emergencies.
She asked me if I make that money at our job
She said she makes 20k a year or a little more if there’s a bonus one quarter.
It became awkwardly silent between us, it was noticeable because our friends made a comment about it
She asked me if I got a degree
I didn’t, she did
She asked if I have experienced, I don’t
She started cursing every manager, exclaimed hatred for every client.
I genuinely feel equally upset about the situation, because fair is fair, right?
She said she’s gonna address it tomorrow. What should I do?
