Derek Wyatt is one of my mentors/motivators when it comes to doing business things. A while back, when I was really struggling for motivation and perspective, he suggested a few books that I could read. I didn’t have to read them all, just the ones that I thought spoke to the problem I was having.
Today (April 14th; yes it’s late but it still counts) is Equal Pay Day. Coming up often in the conversation is the notion that, in order to avoid perpetuating the differences in pay, people need to be more transparent about their salaries. Especially among coworkers; if I’m working with someone, doing the same work at the same level, and he’s getting $20k more than me every year, something is direly wrong.
