Right should you -- discuss your pay with co workers apparently there are people out there who think this is a good idea.
So how do you do that joining me now rusty -- career -- workplace expert at glass door.
Rusty I got its idea I can think of few things that are worse idea than talking -- co workers about what -- -- money you make.
You say it makes sense why.
Well we're in a different -- Jerry here -- were in the age of transparency.
And we've got a younger generation is recovering from behind you and me.
We're pretty used to sharing everything on social media and so you know pay -- -- it's -- tough to -- conversation -- -- to have you know they're comfortable with it.
So you think -- tell me I'm old and I'm just not with the and if I was Smart lady -- Mike thanks so here's my question okay so I'm -- my pay with coworkers how do I know -- even telling me the true.
I would lie -- and -- co worker came to me and said.
Sherry -- making twice what you are and here's the number I'd say you're wrong and -- -- more you I would.
Tell them the truth why would you want your coworkers -- tell you the truth right.
Well I think you're also demanding are looking at trust there as well and so I -- one of things we always say is you know don't talk to somebody don't really trust because.
Vector backfire on your way and you know I know -- -- main motivation anyway.
It's not about Brad is not about comparing mariners vs mind it's about learning and better educating yourself all right -- going alert you.
Just kidding but rusty to what and why am -- asking my co workers for how much money they make how can I -- -- to my advantage.
-- -- Really you know pay practices and companies are a bit like a black holed knowledge -- Companies don't necessarily pay -- arm and form as well enough about that.
Here's a you're trying to figure out what do I need to know to best be equipped to have this conversation with my manager about my -- in the future.
What would you think because you're you're web -- and others like pay scale.
They put out averages.
For pay for different locations all over the country and they tell people people what the average -- -- So if your goal is to get your pay to go higher and you plan to negotiate with your boss.
Would it be just as good if not better to go to one of these web sites get a number walk in and say hey look I'm 5000 under the average.
Yet -- no doubt look at down the conversation with your peers.
Doesn't have to be the first conversation that you have to have -- we now are in this age of transparency and we have -- like glass door.
And others that you can do that but.
But I also think that it is a -- because every move the one size fits one every company's got different.
Ways of paying understanding about what's going on around you that helps you be equipped for that conversation.
-- I'm still -- if I haven't asked you know -- You know coming -- and you probably wouldn't you know share your -- -- would you share it anonymously.
For the up and coming young journalist who someday is saying you know do I want to be.
You know an anchor on Fox Business news I think I'm very valuable for someone to know.
I don't know that I do that either.
It's an interesting question now it's interesting question and I think that the information.
If you can get it.
Is valuable obviously to your negotiation right I mean absolutely true no question about it.
But the idea that you would your buddies at the copy clash considering out and share this information and you can rely -- for negotiation too many.
Seems a little.
I don't now like.
I I would -- I am I mean I have friends that were a lot of I have my perfectly which you wouldn't.
Yeah I think look you look.
For ranges are trying to get -- a direction and sin in the way your patient going to have a conversation that the thing is is that.
You know we're very used to having a one way conversation -- to sitting down and our boss tell us what -- pay increase is going to be it's an uncomfortable conversation the other way.
To have that dialogue and so being better.
-- quick meetings that were having dinner hour conversation as you -- Dora told me she's making this amount.
You know I I think that's a non starter but you're web site and others do have valid information about competitive okay.
-- come back maybe maybe people convince me next time.
Well you probably don't have to talk about your own -- you've got somebody to get talk for you which is you know we would be great if we all had -- -- we resting thanks.
You're welcome thank you.
