Awesome E-Mail of the Day

After posting this story earlier today, I got a great e-mail from a Microsoft employee that I want to share with you. I made a joke in my news post about Microsoft not having a gender pay gap anymore and I jokingly wondered out loud whether they gave all the female employees a raise or simply docked the male employees. I think this e-mail answered my question:

I’m a guy and I work for Microsoft. I truly appreciate the work my female colleagues put in every day, they’re an awesome bunch. As I did not see my pay docked, I would like to think my company did the right thing and ensured they get paid the same as me. I’m proud of my colleagues, no matter their sex, religion, ethnicity etc. They’re amazing people and I love the company I work for. I truly do believe women deserve to be paid equal and treated equal. They are our mothers, sisters, wives and daughters, and there should never have been a pay gap in the first place.

Cheers, love your website!
