President Obama has signed an executive order prohibiting government contractors from punishing workers who discuss or compare their salaries. The idea is to promote equal pay by promoting transparency. Have you ever discussed your salary with a co-worker? How did it go and what did you learn? If you were surprised, did you do anything about it? Call in and tell us about what happened when you talked about how much you make. 212-433-WNYC 212-433-9692
Update: The Senate's Paycheck Fairness Act which would have imposed the same requirement on private employers was blocked by Republicans today.
