I just graduated in May with a masters in social work. I’m registered with the BBS as an ASW and I’m working towards becoming a LCSW. I was took a job in San Francisco for 73k however there’s a required pension that takes 9 percent of my pay (I didn’t know about this before taking the job) that essentially makes my pay 51k a year. Not sustainable in San Francisco as a parent. What are your thoughts? How much should a clinician/case manager in San Francisco, Bay Area, or California?
I’m 37, pregnant and have a very strong urge to move abroad. What country would you recommend for a Black pregnant woman to move out of this country and why? I want strong internet, infrastructure, no extreme weather, resilient for climate change and an appropriate class of Black 40 something men that I might fuck and marry.
I’m thinking about Costa Rica, Germany, Spain and the Dominican.
Is anyone else upset by how much we lose from our paychecks to taxes?? I calculated it out and it’s like 20% of mine. Why give people stimulus checks when you could just have everyone pay less in taxes.
Hi all, my husband is leaving Booz Allen for a new firm, and I’m currently pregnant under his insurance. Does anyone know how long until medical insurance is cut off after leaving? I know most companies provide a grace period before COBRA but they haven’t really provided us with any concrete info (nor sent us cobra docs yet) TIA!
Just got reemed for taking too long to do some things, neither of which I knew had a deadline. I accept responsibility for not being more proactive but also am totally burned out and pregnant with a toddler. This career is so hard to do being a working parent.

I’m returning to work from maternity leave can someone tell me if I can reach out to HR to discuss pay review/increase upon my return. I know for a fact through colleagues I’m the lowest being paid at this company. New comers make same amount or even more. How do I initiate this convo ?
How many people changed careers or wanted to change careers as soon as you returned from maternity leave? You or people you know? I couldn’t care less about advertising right now. Does that feeling go away?
Are there any books or gifts that are good for moms that are expecting their first baby?
Confession...I hate reading. Always have since I was a kid. My eyes feel heavy and I get instantly bored / feel like I’m going to fall asleep no matter what time of day it is or where I am. I WANT to like to read bc I know it will improve my professional / personal life. Anyone else struggle with this and have tips or suggestions? I listen to audibles and watch the news, but at the end of the day I just need to train myself to like reading. Thanks in advance!

I’m in my late 20s & very much single. Every time I bring up something I want to do (travel, adopt a dog, make a big life decision in general), my family always responds “you should wait until you meet the right guy to do that” as if I exist to be a man’s companion and not to be my own full fledged person. It’s to the point where I’m deeply frustrated and want to lose it on them. Advice/has anyone else dealt with this?
I’m looking for advice from a professional that’s familiar with the sale of startup. I’ve been working on my baby (Plankstation) since 2014. I’ve taken it as far as I can on my own, but due to unforeseen circumstances am not able to take it any further...great opportunity for the right person. So far on my own, I’ve had the product developed, secured a manufacturer, utility patent, market research and all social media handles. How do I go about offering it up for sale?
I like my friends kids a lot but I’m not sure I’ll ever want my own. I’d love to just be an auntie. Except my SO wants them. Pretty sure there’s a pending hard convo. How did you know you didn’t? Besides those who always knew…
Be gentle 😔
12 weeks pregnant and looks like my promotion which was supposed to take effect August 1 might be delayed by a month. Don’t go to the office too much but if promotion can only happen in a month- should I tell my boss before ? I don’t want her to feel like I hid it until after the promotion (I recently started in this role).
At what point in negotiation is it advisable to bring up that I would prefer a full remote job.I feel that HRs nowadays are playing it hard to discuss about remote options when employee needs it whereas there was no problem at all when the companies needed it.I am a new mother with no help and WFO/Hybrid is not an option atleast for few months. No organization so far made an open discussion about the options although asked for. They dodge the topic or say choose from list of locations. Thoughts?

Really?! No, there's a difference between popularity and being required to.
