What does everyone earn?

On Friday, the post was about using numbers to rank employees.  And what numbers rank employees more than salaries + benefits?

“Why Being Transparent About Pay Is Good for Business,” The Wall Street Journal, May 31, 2016 R2.  Research shows that maintaining secrecy on employee salaries reduces employee performance.

Who owns the salary information?  What right does the employee have to prevent his or her employer from posting that information on the web?  Would you be embarrassed to have your salary data posted on the door to your office or the wall of your cubicle?  Why?  Does management’s use of publication of salaries to manage people’s expectations and performance violate some unwritten rule?
