Here’s a story about a recent rejection from a law firm, after an initial offer, which may (or may not) be analogous to the W situation at Nazareth College, in which Nazareth withdrew an offer after seeing W’s request for higher pay and other considerations.  This new one doesn’t look like a case of negotiating while female, but it did get the same response as in the notorious W case.  Which begs the question, what obligations does an employer have after extending a job offer?  The W occurred in academe, but it may not be evidence that academia is any different than other lines of work.

Whatcha thinkin'?
