This is a really inspirational story for anyone who has huge student debt. I can’t link a Buzzfeed article, so I will summarize. She graduated in 2009 with $147k in debt. After discovering that she and the other women she worked with were all making the same salary, despite experience, she began asking her male coworkers about their salaries and learned they all got paid MUCH more. She aggressively pursued a new job at a different place, but first researched what the men were being paid. She got the job with the same salary as the men. There’s more to her story, which might prove helpful to any students out there considering taking on a lot of debt. If you want to read the story, look on Buzzfeed ‘This Woman Got A Huge Raise And Paid Off Her Student Loans By Asking The “Over/Under” Question’. Meanwhile, here’s a video she made to celebrate, which also explains what she did: https://youtu.be/X0bsL8L9iIY
