In the first season, Ruth Langmore is offered 1,000 dollars on weekly basis to administer the gentleman club. On the 2nd season (time has passed since she was taking more responsibility) she asked Marty Byrde for a partnership AND a raised. She asked for 25 grands a year. However, that is MUCH LESS money than her actual salary (1,000 dollars a week, which makes 4,000 dollars a month. 48 grands a year).
It cannot be solved. Too late.
