Over at “positivesharing” there is an article titled “Why secret salaries are a baaaaaad idea“. i have worked in several environments where discussing your salary is a terminable offense. I never really understood this mentality. The way most people, myself included, look at this is that if I am formally prohibited from discussing something that is my personal business with anyone that I would want to than there must be something wrong with that topic. I can understand the situation it is some sort of corporate internal or trade secret, but seriously. Unless there is some sort of favoritism, or just generally unfair payment practices in place, I don’t see the reason.
Anyway you look at the secret salry topic, this is a good read; check it out.
Footnote: Don’t ask me what I make; I can’t tell you. LOL
