And just to put my money (heh :blobfoxdealwithitfingerguns: ) where my mouth is here’s my salary history with Automattic (current employer):

Jun 10, 2019: 10,000,000 ISK (date of hire)
Jun 1, 2020: 11,000,000 ISK
Dec 1, 2020: 12,500,000 ISK
Sep 1, 2021: $124,500 CAD (moved to Canada)

All numbers are annual salary in local currencies. Bonuses included (non-existent at Automattic)

I guess this will be my official page until I put something on my blog 🤔

👀 not looking, happy where I am

@lig That's pretty mad. Surely that can only mean someone is getting screwed!

@lig well don’t break your NDA, I definitely wouldn’t recommend that to anyone 😅

That does seem super sketchy though 😬

@reykjalin @lig i don’t know about other countries, but here in the UK it’s unenforceable for an employer to prevent employees from discussing salary. Its called The Equality Act.

@kev @lig it’s the same in Iceland. Not sure about Canada 🤔

@reykjalin There was another hashtag that @meduz started IIRC.
