Is it ever OK to tell someone how much you make?

Laughing all the Way to Work

Someone asked me the other day what my salary was. Years ago we were taught never to reveal our salary. I was so excited about getting a steady salary that I wrote the amount in my calendar on each payday. When my boss noticed what I had written, he took me aside and told me that I should never write my salary down for others to see. I think it is to the employer's benefit that we don't discuss salary. revealing your salary How much do you make?

In 2008 I took a job as an Executive Assistant and Corporate Secretary to a non-profit corporation. Fast forward to today and I went for the interview and accepted the job and left my other job sooner than expected. I also had to get ready for a Board of Directors' meeting earlier than expected, but I did it and my boss even negotiated with my new boss so I could go to the final board meeting to finish off that aspect of my job.
