I need people to start talking about their salaries. Why are y'all so weird about money. Stop. White people especially need to talk about their salaries because marginalized folks in the same fields often have no idea they're being swindled by employers.
Marginalized people have truly internalized the idea that they should just expect to be paid less than their white counterparts. Bullshit. I'm asking for the same as white men. Some of you will read that sentence and feel uncomfortable...whew.
More than self-advocacy, we need to openly talk about salary because people getting paid more need to be aware of discrepancies and advocate for equal pay for their marginalixed peers. Silence that little voice in your head that says you just must be worth more than them.
You're not worth more. If you are a man, you did not *earn* the wage gap between you and your peers. You were given it in order to perpetuate a system that keeps you at the top. That's not right, it's not ethical, it's not sustainable.

Talk about your damn salaries.
Shoutout to the men in my life who have openly talked about their salaries with me, thus giving me the knowledge/support I need to advocate for myself. You're an anomaly tho. Radicalize your friends pls and thank u!!!
To the people who are like "wE hAVe glASSdOoR," the internet can only provide so much information. Not every company or position is on Glassdoor, nor do websites display accurate reflections of what YOUR peers are CURRENTLY making in comparison to you. Pffffft. Bad argument.
Let's not pretend like the mindset behind refusing to share your salary and instead telling people to just "google it" isn't the same mindset shared by employers and a system of inequality. :) You don't want to question/feel uncomfortable about your pay. The system thanks you.
