I am a female who works
for a high school district.
My job requires that I have
specific skills and education,
as do all the positions. However,
the district that I work for
seems to put more emphasis on
physical -vs- mental duties.
A "Maintenance Worker 1",
is required to have any combination
equivalent to graduation from
high school and one year general
maintenance or related experience.
On the other hand, I am required
to have any combination equivalent
to graduation from high school,
supplemented by college-level
course work in computer science
or related field, AND two years
Salary for Maintenance Worker
1 = $2,409 per month
Salary for Me = $2,129 per month
Why are his skills more
valued and have more worth than
mine? Please help me! I'm not
getting anywhere with my union
or our personnel dept.. What
can I do? I appreciate your
help and assistance. Thank you!
