Should employees have a say regarding their boss’s salary?

December 28, 2016

Wages is one of the issues that concern those of us who work the most. Not having a business that brings you income means that you work for someone, that is, you have a boss. Not infrequently workers are concerned and interested in the question of how much their colleagues earn, particularly their supervisors. On the one hand, such an interest is justified. Firstly, it is curiosity “who earns what?” and secondly, it is an uncontrollable desire for transparency and fairness. On the other hand, if you are just a subordinate, then your task is to do your job and follow hierarchy defined in the organization. There is a boss and there is an employee. Boss manages, gives tasks and orders, and the employee must perform them if he agreed to the job. Sometimes there is a desire not only to know the salary of the supervisor but also to directly influence its size, considering it an important tool for defending the collective rights of workers. Yet some workers do not have such a desire.

So what do you think, should employees have a say on the salaries of their superiors?

Do you wish you had more of an influence on people?

Platforms like Facebook (2004), Twitter (2006), Instagram (2010), Snapchat (2011), and TikTok (2017), have given way to the “social media influencer.” These individuals essentially have established credibility in a specific industry – along with access to a large audience – and persuade others to act based on their recommendations. For all intent and purposes, they monetize their popularity and influence. Even if you have zero interest in becoming a social media influencer, do you wish you had more of an influence on people in general?

  • Yes
