My salary and why I believe in salary transparency
I think sharing your salary transparently benefits employees, and the more we share it, the better.
I have sometimes shared my salary on Twitter, by sharing my career or responding to randoms tweets.
I did it when I was earning 1,200 a month and now that I am earning 4,000.
I don't do it out of arrogance, I don't think I'm better than anyone else, but before when I said it, nothing happened and now there are people who resent it.
If I have a good salary and I share it, I am a conceited person, if I have a normal salary and I share it, I am not.
When I am with a person in private, I don't shout out my salary, but if he asks me I tell him without any problem.
On Twitter, I post whatever I feel like, I don't think about a specific person, so I just blurt out these kinds of things and others without thinking too much about it.
The reality is that I believe in salary transparency.
I think we are the employees who benefit from it and I think we should share it more.
Sharing your salary favors the elimination of the gender gap and avoids discrimination.
It also gives more bargaining power to workers, and favors fairer salaries within the same company and outside it.
And, believe it or not, there are companies that publicly share the salary of all their employees, and everyone knows how much the person next to them earns.
I am preparing an email in which I will show you the evolution of my salary from my first job to my current one.
I will also share with you some companies that practice this salary transparency.
