  •  A bad custom of North American culture (9+ / 0-)

    is the reluctance to discuss wages and salary. Sure, maybe it could be gauche to bring it up at the bar with your friends who work in completely different places and fields. But there should be transparency in the work place. I mean, that's one reason why Lily Ledbetter didn't know for years just how badly they were screwing her over.

    And yes, of course, as this comic illustrates, in some workplaces people fear punishment for discussing their salaries. But it seems to be taboo, too, even if there is no such fear. And that needs to end.

    Great comic!
