Always tell people. Salary transparency is power to the workers.

Why would leadership provide transparency? That would mean they'd have to either justify differences or level across the board. Transparency only helps us, the employees.

I’m curious how does your coworker insist on telling? Also, did they tell you how much they get? If you are not comfortable then just say so, it’s ok not to tell

My whole marriage my husband has made a significantly higher salary than me. This hasn't ever really been an issue in our relationship except for him saying he felt I was undervalued... But now the tables have turned and I have a offer that would mean I am on par/out earning him. He says he's happy for me but I don't feel like he really is. I think he's upset that he's not seeing the same growth in his career right now. Wondering if anyone else has gone through this and how you got through it?

Literally me anytime I come to this thread and see partners saying they can’t possibly take a 15-20% cut on their $1M+ salary, meanwhile there’s staff out here making $56k; or, when I see that most of y’all don’t understand basic science, including the fact that young people are a source of exposure and transmission of not just COVID-19, but of all viruses, in turn placing those who are immunocompromised, have preexisting conditions, or elderly at much greater risk. Y’all really do be wilin’.

In my early thirties, still an Engagement Manager only making $355k basic, plus benefits and guarenteed minimum bonus of $100k. What did I do wrong? #Satire #DoesAnyoneElseFeelThisTypeOfDiscussionHappensWayToMuchHere? #WhyDoSoManyPeepsNeedValidation? Not trying to put people down, but seems there are far too many people on the hamster wheel just churning and in need of validation. Any thoughts? Am I off base?

Alright, immigrant here that always found it atrocious to spend more than $35 on a pair of shoes. Well, now that my net worth is over $ 2 million and I make $375k a year, I don’t mind buying one pair of expensive shoes for upto $200 if it will last me at least 3 years. Don’t know where to look. Any recommendations for my budget? Edit: dress shoes, brown leather
