      I can see that site doing well. People are always fascinated by what other people earn. I am sure it will get a lot of visitors.

      I didn't notice a 'my take home pay won't even take me home' section so I couldn't post a profile.

        I got a pay rise yesterday as part of our DPR (development and performance review - appraisal to most people) but I'm not going to be publishing my salary on the web...

          Having been out of the workforce for nearly 20 years I am amazed at how much people earn these days.

          I used to work in a bank so everyone knew how much everyone earned how much their mortgage was and even what they spent their money on when the cheques came in. So there was never any secrecy but I wouldn't have wanted everyone to know.

            Im jealous of anybody that gets over £10,000 a year.I can only dream of getting that amount!

            Then again I had a confirmation letter for my new job and it said in the future my pay could go up depending on my 'usefulness' to the company!

                  I'm gob smacked that people will actually happily publish their earnings. I always felt it was a private matter between me and my employer.
                  God helps them that help themselves.

                    I know vaguely what other people earn where I work as we've been put onto a single pay spine, so its quite easy to find out what scale various posts are as it was written on various staff structures that were handed around at the time.

                      I think it is a good thing. I believe knowledge is power and it certainly helps if you know what your colleagues at the same level are earning when it comes to asking for a wage increase. Some of my ex colleagues and I shared that information and used it to our advantage. It particularly helped me at the time as I was mainly working with men whom I discovered were being paid more for the same or lesser work. Bring it on i say!!

                        absolutely, knowledge is power - i never understand why people get touchy when salaries are mentioned. whats the big deal?
