Women aren’t quitting jobs to become mothers. They’re quitting for better pay

new global study of women in their 30s found they don’t leave jobs because they’re worried about family obligations. They leave because employers won’t pay and promote them. “Surprisingly,” reads the report, “young women identified finding a higher paying job, a lack of learning and development, and a shortage of interesting and meaningful work as the primary reasons why they may leave.”

This is only surprising if you have never spoken to a woman in her 30s.

The solution: Pay women more.

Works for men too!
