I agree… and that includes paying a man or a woman more than their colleagues doing the same job if they provide greater worth to the employer.
And how do you define what a person is worth? How do you defend a different pay level between two workers based on what a person is worth (especially if one is a man and the other is a woman)? This simplistic reasoning is what comes from never having a real job.
She thinks the solution is to ban asking what a person makes when hiring and allowing workers to share their pay will colleagues. Fact is you can’t stop workers sharing info anyway if they are so inclined, but openly encouraging it is loaded with problems… especially if an employer is, in fact, paying people what they are worth.
Should we share appraisal forms as well so colleagues can see all the shortcomings of others? The underlying assumption seems to be that everyone is somehow equal and should be paid accordingly. They ain’t‼️
