A little over a year ago, I posted about my boss making constant comments about my salary. Most comments said I must not have been performing well. I want to update that he was fired, not me.

He was fired thanks to brave folks speaking up about his sexism and racism that he was spewing when making employee decisions. The MD of the agency recognized after a convo w/ him that he was jealous and mad that I would make as much as I did causing the comments. For anyone who is blaming themselves for inappropriate comments/treatment from their boss - please evaluate yourself. If you can honestly say you’re performing then it is likely them. This is especially for marginalized groups because if we keep trying to “rise above” we will sink below. We need to get people like him out of the industry so it can be better for everyone. For those that said his comments were bullshit and I should check him on it - THANK YOU. It was that push that the truth ended up revealing itself - out of his own mouth no less! Appreciate you!!
