People Are Debating Whether Or Not To Share Wage Information After A Woman’s Story Blows Up

Salary is a sensitive matter for some companies. They keep the salary a secret because they want to decide based on the employee’s experience. The more talented and experienced they are, the higher salary they have. Moreover, some employees also feel uncomfortable talking to their coworkers about how much they make. It’s not a problem if they have a higher salary than their peers. But if they discover that their coworkers make more than them, they could feel jealous and resentful.

However, secret often makes people curious. And more often than not, discussing salaries can benefit employees. Take this woman for example. After sharing salary information with her colleagues, she found that she was paid lower than others. This sharing helped her increase her salary by $30K. Immediately, she shared her experience with others on Twitter. And her post blew up. Many people debated about the pros and cons of openly talking about salaries right in the comment section.

A Twitter user Lily Konings, who works in tech, posted a tweet about how discussing salaries once helped her bump up her salary by $30k
