My husband is a state employee and his salary (as well as every other state employee, obviously) has been made public for a few years now. My husband has no problem with it, but it just seems kind of invasive to me.
I saw another company is making headlines today for the same thing. SumAll, a technology company, has created a "transparent workplace" where all employees are aware of what each other makes.
What do you think of this? Is salary transparency a good idea or a bad one?
