YES I want to know
I worked at a job in a lab that lasted 19 years. Pay levels were not discussed and were not known among the employees mostly because the company was always looking for bargain priced employees. I was the most senior lab tech by the time the whole lab was out sourced to over seas. I wanted to be the first out the door but I was the only fully qualified tech so the company retained my services to the last day( would you walk a way from double your pay when you were already set for early retirement?). The grind with me is that because I stayed I found out that a lot of the employees were over paid for their skill and education levels. Being popular was more important then being able to do the job. If the information had been a matter of public record many of the problems due to employees not being qualified to do their jobs would have never occurred. Plus, tracing job discrimination and pay issues relating to equal pay for equal work would have doable. I checked out the companies current hiring practices and you can't even get an interview for my old job without having a degree in the actual field. By the way the out sourcing did not work and many of the company's operations have now returned to the shores of my country.
