Speaking about salary is considered to be in bad taste at best, unprofessional at worst. But thinking critically about the taboo that surrounds salary, who does it really benefit? From my perspective, certainly not the workers. As The Atlantic points out, pay discrimination against women and people of color can be perpetuated with no one being the wiser when companies are not transparent about compensation. Encouraging employees to keep each other in the dark about their pay only benefits the corporation since it gives employees less motivation to seek higher compensation and benefits.

I’m glad the portrait of Ben Franklin stayed the same on the new $100 bill. There’s something about his slight, tight frown, the paternal hint of disappointment in his eyes and those pursed, sealed lips that seem to say, “I don’t approve of what you’re doing, but I can’t stop you from rolling this banknote into a straw and ripping a fat rail of white lightning in the Buffalo Wild Wings handicapped bathroom stall, you goddamn beautiful disaster.”
Monument Valley is a region of the Colorado Plateau characterized by a cluster of vast sandstone buttes, the largest reaching 1,000 ft (300 m) above the valley floor. It is located on the Arizona-Utah state line.
Monument Valley has been featured in many forms of media since the 1930s. Director John Ford used the location for a number of his best-known films, and thus, in the words of critic Keith Phipps, “its five square miles have defined what decades of moviegoers think of when they imagine the American West.”
