Reminder: "oh, we don't talk about money" / "we don't really compare salaries here" / etc. is literal capitalist propaganda designed to keep you from recognizing the true value of your labor.
Insist on a frank discussion of the compensation you and those around you receive for your time and effort.
@noelle we started talking about salaries at my job lately and it just makes everyone mad and nobody can really do anything about it
@noelle so much truth
@noelle in my company i was told that this may weaken my position when negotiating a raise..
@noelle (translated: stfu talking about that with your collegues or the next raise won't be a raise...)
@noelle It's also a good excuse to fire people who do.
@noelle bbbut that might reveal favouritism and gender disparities!
@noelle yup, and it's illegal in the state to prevent people from/punish people for sharing salaries, despite what some company policies will try and tell you!
@noelle fuck this is so true. They ask you not to tell anyone when you get a raise but it's Just so they don't have to compensate anyone else fairly.
