"never speak of their salary"

I don't know how it is in Merrie ol' Angle-land, but the social prohibition against discussion salary is pretty high here, and employers like it that way.

It recently got in the way of contractors being converted to employees at PPOE, where no one knew where they stood financially because of this. People would get together and bitch, but not actually discuss numbers, so when they got lowballed, they didn't know it.
