Unpleasant Surprise

I was unpleasantly surprised a few months ago when I learned that the guy who had been hired as my co-worker, to do the exact same video editing work I do, is being paid almost 10% more than me.

When I was hired I tried to negotiate for a higher salary but was specifically told that the pay for this position is fixed and everyone in this position is paid the exact same amount.

Now I feel as if I was scammed because my employer assumed that, as a woman, I would not push harder.

I need the job, but am figuring it wont be long before I begin looking for another one if this is how they treat women here.
