Whitney Young, morning co-host at WPXY-FM in Rochester, NY abruptly left her job as morning co-host when job negotiations for higher pay did not come to fruition according to USA Today newspaper.


"Whitney Young, a former morning radio show host, announced on social media Thursday that she was leaving WPXY-FM radio, citing an equal pay dispute.

Young, who teamed with Corey James from 5:30 to 10 a.m. weekdays to host #TeamPXY, said, "I choose to leave my position as morning show host, because my male co-host's salary was nearly double my own, and I was unable to negotiate a raise that would reduce the pay disparity."

She continued, "This inequality is in conflict with my most deeply held beliefs."

All the more reason why people need to give serious consideration to organizing under the banner of a union. In unions, pay is not based on sex but instead the type of work one does regardless of sex. Wake up America!
