Dear CD's,
The salary in our office is always confidential. Though there was no verbal warning that our salary is confidential, all our pay cheques are given in confidence.
When i joined in 2002 of April, My salary was $10 an hour. After 5 years, I earn a salary of 28 K a year (Annual with no overtime). In our office, there are just 2 people with more than 5 years experience (me and another guy) . The other one is an aged architect (65 years) and he earns 32K. He has been in our office for 10 years.
Recently , many people ran away from our office and hence he recruited 4 new people. In that only one is a senior person with 8 years Canadian experience. the other 3 are fresh to Architecture (although they have worked with AUtocad in some Canadian factory).
2 days back, I learnt the Administrator password to our company. I was thus able to see all our pay cheque transaction. I was shocked in learning how much the new comers were earning. All the 3 new comers were earning 32K a year while the expereinced new comer was earning 40K a year. I spoke to the other aged architect and he was also shocked. He told me that our Boss was taking us for granted and that he was exploiting us.
Has any Desi been in a similar situation like this. If so, what was the steps taken to inform the employer that he has to be fair to his senior employees. The new people do not know a thing and we are teaching them each day. I canot also directly tell the boss that he is giving us less, because then he will ask as to how i know that my salary is less.
Running away (with out giving notice) is an option but how do i teach him a lesson that he canot exploit people?
Your inputs welcomed.

I think paying the same salary for a experienced person (you) and new comer with little/no experience is against the Ontario Employment rules. You should see if you can sue your employer for discrimination. Contact the appropriate government agency.

I don;t know if any such law exists but The First Question will be 'How did you Know?'
... ohh well, you see, I got the Administrator Password & just by accident I happened to check the Salary of other Person. I had no intension ... ... ...

You did something that you should not have done at first place. Why would someone give a raise to someone based on 'Stolen' information? If you are not happy, change the job ... your company won't cry but will be happy to have milked you for 5 years.

Now where did that come from :confused: I've never heard of any such law. The employer is obligated to pay you the minimum salary as per the Govt. standards.

I would be interested in the link if anyone can provide that.... time for a raise :cheers:

There is a common belief that one enjoys a good jump in salary when changing jobs or (sometimes) when being promoted within the organization. So, maybe the newbies have found their pay raises by leaving their old company and joining this one.

Anyway, unless the wages are set by some union (or other) contracts, I don't believe the newcomers should necessarily be paid lower than the exisitng. As a free-will employer and employee, the salary is what was negotiated between the parties and what was mutually agreed upon (grudgingly or otherwise). There is a reason for maintaining payroll confidentiality.

TK think you should concentrate on your career and self development then teaching lessons to people ..... it is commnedable that you managed to start work in your profession right at the start ... but to continue in a job that is not providing you financial or professional satisfaction is not very good. Five years is a long time to be in a company that has been exploting you. So it is about time that you look for options .... as you had mentioned earlier also some of your collegues have left this office and joined new offiices ..... think it is time to give them a ring and find out what are your options.
A word of advice ...... if you are not "hell bent"upon working for an architect, it would make more sense to look for work in construction companies as a technologist. It would defenitely prove to be more rewarding then your present situation.

You have invested five years of your life in this company & the least you can carry from here is a good reference .... so my advice is to look for a job & say goodbye to your present employer.
