FROM THE BOQ: BUSINESS, POLITICS AND ETHICS #17

Another question from Gregory Stock’s book is this:

What would you do if you found out that a recently hired co-worker was making a third more than you for the same job you were doing?

Raise hell, of course.  But in the most diplomatic manner possible.  I certainly wouldn’t confront the co-worker–it wouldn’t be his or her doing.  I’d confront my supervisor–or whoever was responsible for this.

Of course I’d first ask why–that might straighten it out right then.  But if it didn’t–whatever the reply to my question why–I would not stand for it.  I would demand that my salary be raised to equal that of this new employee–immediately.

And if my demand were not met, I would resign.  Then I would file a lawsuit against the discriminating employer.
