Depending on your personal taste for confrontation, the following situation is either a leverage dream or an interpersonal workplace nightmare. On Reddit's "Antiwork" community, one woman shared a rather awkward anecdote.
"My boss accidentally sent me a spreadsheet with everyone's salaries," wrote Harley-the-Harlot, before elaborating.
F*ck. I am being severely underpaid and it’s making it extremely hard to give a sh*t about this team anymore.
My team is only made up of 12 people, but the gap between me and the next lowest paid person is nearly $30k. Between me and the highest paid is $130k.
I understand that we’re all in different positions and levels of seniority, but still… I’ve lost all motivation to work hard and deliver for my team. I’m not being compensated for the level of stress I’m taking on doing the grunt work of people making 4x my salary. God, this sucks.
