I have always been a strong believer in salary transparency. People should know what their colleagues are earning, and it should be a part of the company’s culture to communicate what you earn and why.
As an example, white men tend to make more than women and minorities even after controlling for education level and years of experience; this is known as the Gender Pay Gap.
The more we know about what people are paid, the less likely we are to have pay gaps based on race, gender, or any other factor.
