The Professionals’ Choice for Real Estate Jobs

Millennial Boomers

If SelectLeaders is any indicator, the Millennials are having a Baby Boom. In July and August, four of our millennial men in key roles will become fathers. By the first Baby Shower, and seeing what it takes to provide for an infant, it is time for ‘The Talk,” when they volunteer for more responsibility to go with, as they point out, their increasing responsibility. “The Fatherhood Bonus and Motherhood Penalty” reports for Third Way conducted by University of Massachusetts, Amherst Professor Michelle Budig, PHD, indicate at the very top of the income distribution for women, there is no motherhood penalty at all. Nannies, housekeepers, and fabulous food delivery aside, these women, like my new fathers, know how to negotiate. As an employer, this was my chance to do all the things I had tried to accomplish when this work was just a gleam in their father’s eye. So, like others before me, I offer ‘The Fatherhood Bonus’ – accomplish this and we’ll both make more money. Children are a double bonus.
