Most Workers Are Really Underpaid, And Don’t Realize It

We bet a lot of people out there think they aren’t getting paid enough on the job. Well, it turns out most people are probably right.

Glassdoor looked base salaries reported as compared to the current market value of a job and determined that folks could be getting $7,500 more than they do per year on average. The site also determined the jobs where workers are the most underpaid and if yours is on the list you may want to talk to your boss. 

Top 10 Most Underpaid Jobs (potential salary growth)

  1. Emergency Medical Technician (21.9% or $7,771)
  2. Certified Nursing Assistant (21.3% or $6,505)
  3. Research Assistant (20.9% or $7,935)
  4. Java Developer (17.7% or $16,792)
  5. Pharmacist (16.5% or $23, 261)
  6. Web Designer (15.5% or $9,508)
  7. Software Engineer (15.2% or $17,943)
  8. Medical Assistant (15.1% or $5,320)
  9. Marketing Manager (15.0% or $14,107)
  10. Communications Manager (14.8% or $13,334)

As for why so many people are underpaid, it all comes down to negotiations. Data suggests that close to 60% of people did not negotiate their salaries and they probably should. A recent study found that 75% of college grads were able to get a 5% to 10% salary increase by negotiating, yet only 38% of them actually did.

  • Of course a lot of people don’t negotiate because they may be scared to but there are some things you can do that will make you more confident going into a negotiation. First off, it’s important to know the going rate for the job you’re interested in, and that can easily be found on a variety of online sites. Also, when applying for a job, ask for a salary range rather than a specific salary, you may be surprised with what you get.

Spanking Your Kid Could Soon Be A Crime In Scotland

Assault will send a clear message to all of us about how we treat Put away the switches and canes — Scotland is expected to be the first country in the UK to ban smacking children.

A member of the Scottish Greens political party, John Finnie, proposed the law in an effort to ensure children equal protection from assault, The Guardian reported.

Finnie told the outlet the bill would remove the defense of “justifiable assault” from Scottish law, guaranteeing children the same legal protection as adults, the outlet reported.

“Giving children equal protection against each other and underpin Scotland’s efforts to reduce violence,” Finnie said.

“The physical punishment of children is already illegal in 52 countries and my proposal will give children in Scotland the necessary protections to flourish in a healthy environment and encourage the building of stronger relationships between children, their parents and others who care for them.”

The three-month public consultation on the proposed bill, which took place over the summer, received a positive response from public organizations and individuals, including the Scottish Police Federation.

The UK is currently one of four countries in the European Union that has not committed to reforming law surrounding the physical punishment of minors.

Join the Mile High Club With This In Flight App

Have you been dying to join the Mile High Club at some point in your life? Doing the dirt on an airplane has always has some kind of appeal to people – no matter how uncomfy the actually act is in real life.

Now finding a sexual partner on your flight is made a little easier with Qantas’s new Boeing Dreamliner offering a new service called “Seatchat.” What’s that?

Seatchat is a way for you to message anyone around the plane as long as you know their seat number. It comes up on the fun little screens they have on the back of all the seats. Sure, the app is probably more commonly used to chat with friends and family members seated in other areas of the plane.

Now, WE see it as an opportunity to chat up the cute stranger a few rows ahead…and while the app doesn’t exist on all flights, once it starts getting more popular, we imagine people will start using it to slide into strangers’ DMs.

Blinq rings - Gold and diamond rings that hide smartwear tech

Let's face it: for as cool as fitness trackers and other wearable tech items are, they're not great to look at. And this was the prime mover behind Blinq, beautiful rings made of gold and other luxury materials that subtly hide some serious tech. 

Not only will the rings count your steps -- sending them and other fitness data to your phone -- but they can be set to inform you of incoming alerts for various apps like Uber, Instagram, and more.

The rings vibrate, and their gemstones actually glow subtly to inform you, instead of having you whip out your phone to check, which, let's face it, we all do way too much.

Instead, you can cut down the clutter. You can pre-set the wirelessly-charging rings to, say, ignore all incoming emails and calls from work, but let you know if your friends are trying to get a hold of you.

And while it's sad to have to think about, the Blinq rings can also act as a panic button. They let you subtly send an emergency message to your contacts, along with your exact location, by tapping the ring in a certain sequence -- so if a date starts going south in a serious way, you can send an S.O.S. to the cavalry.

The fully waterproof smart jewelry line was a hit on Kickstarter, and will begin shipping out at the end of the year. A line of more masculine rings will come next year.

Cute girl who didn't have much of a sence for personal space - m4w 

eye color: Brown hair: Brown height: 6'2" (187cm)

You were standing like 5 inches away as my scruffy white/green plaid wearing self was figuring out how to get bulk curry powder. When I realized this I turned to you and we had a slight stare off where I felt kinda uncomfortable and walked away. When I crossed you in another isle I think I saw you bite your lip. You were super cute though and I'd be up for meeting up sometime to get coffee or something.
