Here is a letter I sent to Money magazine regarding a recent article in their April 2007 issue.
Underpaid? How to find out now by Sam Grobart
I work in a public school district. Each year our salaries are published in the local newspaper. Everyone in town knows what I make! Some people will comment on my salary, however, most do not.
Each year everyone is given an “across-the-board” increase, which usually amounts to little more than a cost of living adjustment. That is the frustrating part, no matter how hard I work, I know I am going to get the same raise as the guy in the cubicle next to me!
