Do you share your salary with your co-workers? It’s a lot more common that you think. A new survey found that 54% of workers (61% of men, 49% of women) say they share salary info with their co-workers, and it seems Millennial workers are much more likely to do so, according to the survey. So why are workers swapping salary info? 45% of those surveyed said they use the information to increase their own salaries. (Market Watch)

Lichter. “Marriage is still based on love, but it also is fundamentally an economic transaction. Many young men today have little to bring to the marriage bargain, especially as young women’s educational levels on average now exceed their male suitors.”
