"I got fired from my job once because I wouldn't do something illegal. He, the boss, was trying to get around paying taxes by doing something with our tips. I wouldn't do it, so he fired me. Pretty sure he just didn't like me." - Lucy is a waitress in New Orleans.
"I was having cocktails with a group of women and one commented about how she hated her job and that she was underpaid. A friend answered, "If you are good at what you do, you can always ask for more. There's always more in the budget." That was the comment that made me want to teach women about negotiating." - Jamie Lee is a consultant with She Negotiates.
