Today I am here to talk about the social work saying “We are in it for the outcome not the income” and variations on that theme.
I get where this is coming from but we are degreed and licensed professionals. Many of us have families and student loan debt. We want to help people but that shouldn’t mean we take a vow of poverty to do so.
As professionals we need to advocate for ourselves and show other professionals how we should be treated.
Remember we can use the skills we learned to make sure we are treated fairly!
