No kidding. I'm under 30 (and a woman). In my last job I found it impossible to
get promoted because, among other things, the general perception was that
I was young enough and was in no hurry. I wasn't in a "hurry", but after almost
3 years in a job, I was getting bored and looking for new challenges. The company's
response was: Wait another year and we'll see. At the same time, the company was
hiring senior writers at a much higher pay scale than they were giving me, and
telling me that I was mistaken in thinking someone so young could be making
that kind of salary. Well, I am now. However, it took me a while to find a company
that understands that a young woman who does the same work as an older man should
get the same salary.
