Dear Mr/Ms Anonymous:

My original reply to your e-mail went like this:

Your plan is a good one but, if I were you, I wouldn't want to stand on
one leg until management makes amends. Anyone stupid (or corrupt)
enough to hire someone with typos in a CV -- for any position -- is
clearly too stupid (or corrupt) to recognize (or care about) quality.

In the meantime, keep a file of every single mistake the new writer

Unfortunately, I sent it to the wrong address. Instead of re-sending
it, I just sat back and watched the discussion develop through the day.
Now I feel moved to comment.

First, I find it extremely disturbing that so many of our peers advise
against inquiry that might lead to unhappiness. Hardly any of the great
writers and thinkers through history have recommended this practice
suggesting, instead, that life is best faced with a bit more courage.

Second, surely it must have occurred to someone that "management"
insists that salaries not be discussed for a reason -- to hide these
kinds of differences. Can you imagine how difficult it would be if
managers actually had to publicly justify salaries?

The disparity you describe used to be called "inequity" but now
apparently is considered "market reality."
