i'm still coughing, but i'm gonna try to go to work tomorrow anyways. what the hey.
question: at book club, it was brought up that it's probably illegal to forbid employees to discuss their salaries. i seem to remember agreeing not to when i signed on where i work, or maybe at the last job. or maybe they just discouraged it. on one hand, it can really screw with morale for people to talk about salary and compare. on the other hand, if people can't talk about their salaries, they cannot find out about any unfair practices that are going on. what do you think? what's it like where you are? i was really happy for a long time not knowing shit about what my peers made; i was making enough and that was all i needed to know. i felt it was good that talking about it was discouraged. now i am not so sure.
