I think unions would form if we were transparent with salaries. We all know the people at the bottom are severely underpaid and those at the top are overpaid.

Younger millennials (like myself) are super transparent about how much we are making and want to be making. I know the salaries and goals of my younger work friends as well as college friends. Transparency is bound to happen agency wide eventually

Hopefully that trend continues once you’re making more, because it usually doesn’t

Unless it’s broken down like city jobs, where X years experience offers a Y to Z salary range, I think it all means trouble.

Anecdotally, I’ve never been happy when I learned someone made nearly the same I did when I feel my skill sets are more varied and valuable. I’ve also never liked having outright favoritism rubbed in my face, which seems to happen in small places where I’ve worked. I also feel uncomfortable being honest about frustrations with people who I know make less.

Also, I think if enlightens employees to where the real priorities are as a business, especially if there’s a pattern with other teams earning more on average. They may feel they’re not valued at all, and have stats to support it when they leave.

Finally, unless you’re paying on the + side of average salaries, that transparency will leak and your talent will get poached—and competitors may know exactly where to start negotiations

Sharing salaries is good for employees, bad for employers. It can show systematic pay discrimination and let you know when to leave if you’re over-performing, underpaid, and the agency refuses adjust your salary accordingly

I posted this somewhere else/ copy paste:

I got a promotion and bec of my (male) co-workers honesty about his parallel title/responsibilities, I was able to negotiate and ask for a salary within a small percentage of that. Btw, I’m a woman and was offered about 10k less than what I ended up with bec of his direct honesty. I never told my employer I knew or disclosed our convo but I was VERY direct that I knew my promotions worth Being transparent about salaries should be a given this day and age but it isn’t. Getting workers for cheap is the name of big business so we’ve gotta have each other’s backs as colleagues. That also why I kept my tactic above bar, I’d never say “Bob makes $xxxx so I should to.” That’d be throwing us both under the bus. Be strategic

I want to acknowledge as a dad of 2, we just lost our third at 12 weeks due to a missed miscarriage. We were devastated, not only by the loss but by the week long process that followed.

Write the wrong thing. When you don’t know how to say it right, start with what’s too obvious, too low-brow, too high-brow, too corporate, too flippant, etc. You’ll be surprised how getting all that out of your metal bowels will liberate you, and give you something to pivot off or improve upon. It’s all about just starting somewhere, even if it sucks.

Or should I just include a range? I don't want to ruin a chance at a higher salary range by selling myself short off the bat.
