Re: Note to plaintiffs

It's to hide pay discrepancies, but less of the "unfair" bit, in my opinion. Pay discrepancies can open up for all kinds of reasons. Say you're planning to leave your company for a job elsewhere, but your boss persuades you to stay in part by giving you a raise, because he values your work. Should all your peers automatically get a raise as well? That would be nuts. Is that pay discrepancy unfair? I'd say not; you earned it by making the company evaluate your worth, and they judged that you were worth more than your less ambitious colleagues. Seems fair to me, your colleagues are free to make similar moves themselves if they so wish.
