Gillian Anderson was offered
half the salary
David Duchovny was offered
for the X-Files reboot.

She is equally important to the show.
She negotiated for equal pay.

She was able to do this
because she KNEW
she was being lowballed,
that she was being treated
as ‘less than’
(likely because she’s female).

Some companies encourage employees
to keep their salaries secret.
They do this because
an employee is being treated
unfairly.
That’s the ONLY reason
to do this.

Thankfully in this information age,
this happens less and less.
Employees talk.
They might realize
they’re being lowballed.
They negotiate for more.

If you’re asked
to keep information secret,
think about why
you’re being asked this.
What are you being asked
to support?
Ask yourself
if that’s the legacy
you wish to leave in this world.
