Within eight months of each other, two young college grads start work as paralegals in a small, New York City law firm.
- Both are graduates of top-20 colleges in the Northeast.
- Neither has any relevant paralegal experience.
One gets an office; the other gets a cubicle. The one with the office earns a significant amount more.
Now, for the riddle: Which paralegal is female?
If you guessed the lower-paid cubicle dweller … you’re right.
Follow this link for a Q&A with Anthony,* the young male paralegal from the riddle above, to find out why he’s coming out on top, and feels guilty about it.
