This seems to be an interesting topic that breaks down the American social taboo surrounding salaries.

What do you think?

Naive at best May 5, 2015

This equals to saying wage inequality boils down to one factor being secrecy.
Which is a bit naive but honestly, so are most of the feel good "movements" social networks seem to feed on.

If people think they're being underpaid, it's their right to ask for a raise as far as I know. Just maybe be prepared to take no for an answer and have a contingency plan (but I think the whole point was to dodge that part).
That's called "real time social interaction between people", hashtag "thathorrificeventlikelytohappenoff-lineandgetthingsdoneforreal.
