Dispatches from Matt Crackle, Installment V

I am a BIG fan of salaries being transparent. One reason I feel this way? The justification for my low wages–my value–being constantly defended by those who benefit most from my exploitation. If, in fact, I am worth only what they pay, then how is it that they are worth what they are paid? “You knew the deal when you took the job” is the argument that gets busted out when “you are being paid market value” doesn’t fly. And when everyone knows who gets paid what, things take on quite a different perspective.
