ALLIES. THIS ONE IS FOR YOU.

at my last job i talked to eight male coworkers, and found out every single one of them made far more than me. i am so thankful for their transparency and collaborative explorations into how our pay worked (and wasn't working).

but when it came to asking my boss to fix it? i was alone. when it came to escalating to my skip level and the director and employee relations and DEI? alone. to quitting my job and filing a charge with the EEOC? ALONE. to hiring lawyers and filing a PAGA notice? completely, utterly alone.

not only was i alone, but several men who had talked numbers with me started to see me as the enemy, a threat to their sense of job security, and to cut off contact. after reading Blind to Betrayal by Drs. Freyd and Birrell I understand why my former peers couldn't break out of their dependency relationship with our employer to admit the illegal actions they observed. that's human nature, and nothing i say could change that.

but DUDES. don't just spectate while your colleague fights for her livelihood! join her. demand transparency from your bosses. normalize talking about pay with colleagues. and when they opine "but paying her more wouldn't be fair" say "strange, you don't seem to think it's unfair to pay me more!"

in fact, this mug is priced at $100, imperfections and all, because let's face it, you make significantly more than her.

  • Wheelthrown speckled buff stoneware with a textured feel.

  • The words "pay her more than me" stamped and inlaid in rainbow colors on the front.

  • Satin white glaze lining the inside, rim, handle, and swooping down the back.

  • A band directly below the glaze is lighter than the rest of the clay, so this mug is considered a second.

  • 4.25″ wide by 4.5″ tall, holds 16 ounces.

  • Food, dishwasher and microwave safe.
