Negotiating wages is hard enough for the experienced job seeker, but for recent college grads, it can be even harder. NDSU is teaching students how to determine what wages they deserve. It's a broad topic, so NDSU is focusing down on females.

On average white women earn only 77 cents compared to every dollar men make. Those earnings drop for black and Hispanic women.

Sarah Hunter – NDSU Career Specialist: "Women tend to shy away from negotiation because they think it’s distasteful when they ask for extra money or the money that they deserve."

This discussion is part of NDSU's Women's Week celebrations.
