Steve Arrants wrote about a neighbor, Jean, who felt cheated because a
new-hire with less experience is being paid 15% more than she is.

Did the neighbor willingly agree to work for what she is earning? In my
opinion, her employer is living up to the agreement and Jean has no
grounds for complaint. If she were contracting the job and her client
awarded a different contract to another writer for a higher fee, could
Jean go back and raise her rates? No way. Yes, it seems unfair, but any
adult worker should know that sharing salary information with co-workers
only leads to someone feeling cheated. Jean should work hard, mind her
own business and press for a substantial increase at her next review.
