When I was growing up, and throughout most of my career, NOBODY talked openly about how much money they made. It was a cardinal sin to openly discuss pay. I’m not really sure what the punishment would have been if anyone was caught discussing salaries, but I didn’t want to mess around and find out! I now know that employers hate it when employees discuss salaries because it exposes discrimination and other unfair pay practices. Thankfully, there are now pay transparency laws that require employers to disclose information about employee compensation, either to the employees themselves or to the public. Not all states have these regulations, but they are on the horizon. An interesting article about pay transparency can be found at,employees%20how%20they%20decide%20salary.
