Re: Salary details of ONE THIRD of Americans shared with Equifax
I agree with Steve . This is completely intentional.
It's you, who is not allowed to know salary of your coworker or friend. Because if you knew it, you'd want to get a better deal from your employer (or even change one). It's them, employers, who want to keep it in secret from you, employee.
Now, doesn't it become logical and explain, why credit report agencies collect and share that info between companies (employees)? They work in their behalf, not yours... And doesn't that explain why they don't want you to share that info?
Keep it simple, it'll become complex by itself...
Was reading on LinkedIn about companies who are doing just that - making the info on salary visible to all. With VERY clear job roles and salary levels. IF a person thinks they belong in a different level - then they can ask about it and talk about it with their managers.
It seems to be working well for a number of the companies.
