This sounds like a potentially great idea to me. I've had jobs in the past where white employees were paid more than blacks who were doing the same jobs. I love the transparency that could virtually eliminate such stupidity. In America women and some minorities continue to be discriminated against and I'm in favor of anything that could help to stop these practices.
If the government has to know my salary, then it doesnt bother me to disclose it. Everyone will see that I'm poor, just like any other Joe Smo who works their ass off.
This is a GIGANTIC no-no! This is confidential information that should not be open to public scrutiny!
My financial business is supposed to be private! No one should have the right to scrutinize my paycheck but me! I will not work for such a company for just that reason. If I have a concern, if there are inequalities of pay, like men making more than women for the same job, I take them to the boss and to corporate. If the company is honorable on that level, then I have no problem. If they are hiding those inequalities, then, there should be audits, but do not make my finances public business.
How are you going to know if someone is making more than you if they are hiding those inequalities as you say? Who cares what you make and why are you afraid to let someone else know? Might be that you are insecure or afraid someone might see that you are not pulling your weight.
I think horrible idea
I totally agree with this program. I would have loved to see what people I worked with were making in the bonus area. We all suspected that some were getting paid extra to tell lies about some other. And also would love to have known what the bosses were being paid!
Just a thought. When you tell an employee that one employee is more valuable than another because of performance and productivity results, that challenges the idea that somebody cannot be better than someone else and that the "numbers" don't lie. Uhh yes, numbers can be deceiving! The "equality" idea that "All men are created equal" also is not true. Just look at athletes in sports. The employee who is insecure about that performance possibility in another, can become angry and jealous. Do the ends justify the means?
Everyone in the sports industry knows what each other is making. There are no secrets or hidden salaries. It seems to be working quite well.
Hats off the all post,,,we all have oppinions,,may not be same,,but,,thats good also.... I retired from a railroad.. it was union........I hired in 1975,,, and,,hired in making same amount of money that the man beside me made and he had been working 17 years.......Of cource,,I was happy,,,but,,,I do not think this is right.....There should be a hireing in salary and work your way up..... We all got raises at same time,,,,,,,,,and,,,be honest,,very little union help.....But,,,had to belong....Things have changed,,,time has changed..........WORK HARD,,GET OUT OF LIFE WHAT YOU PUT IN.....!!!
That is true to a point. Where a relative worked he was hired in at a certain wage and along comes someone with much less experience and got paid several dollars per hour more. The sad thing was that the new guy didn't know how to do have of the job, and the boss had to babysit his employee most of the day and show him how to do almost everything. The new employee didn't even know how to turn on the machine! Needless to say the relative didn't stay long at this business and from what we have heard, the company is almost ready to close the doors and others are leaving also.
GREAT ATTITUDE!! WISH MORE PEOPLE WERE LIKE YOU.
i cannot beleive that any company would post how much each employee makes. if this is in the spirit of being open and honest, it is foolish at best. it is nobody's business what any other person's salary is. it is simly wrong snd if i worked there, i would not let them get away with it
Started working for a small photo lab in 1970, the owner believed in honesty, anyone who worked there was able to look at the books, nothing was kept secret, they dont make people like that any more.
