Self Esteem, Labor Issues

The low hourly wage you earn each day may reinforce the feeling of being not good enough, or a "butt-hole" in the larger society. Nothing is more important than fighting low self-esteem.
The fight for equal wages for equal work is best supported by a firm foundation of high self esteem which enables you to continue the difficult, often arduous, work involved in achieving economic parity in the business world.
Women and girls often have low self esteem because of institutional gender oppression which sucks the life out of you every day from childhood on. It is easy to end up with not enough self esteem to fight the good fight, or the dirty hard fight, you probably will have to fight to achieve economic equality through your individual labor.
It is wise to hang on to all your spiritual resources, as well as find creative outlets in which you can heal your inner child and express your individual strengths to achieve high self esteem. You may find it easier to take control of the sharply unfair gender (or racial) incline of unfair hourly wages with necessary positive thought and confidence.
Good luck! I am certainly still fighting that nasty economic and
gender-based fight myself for even a portion of my vast personal
wealth, while I only receive a small check each month. I, too,
work to have a positive approach each day when I go out the door.
It is never easy for anyone.
