I do not remember the references, but I have seen at least one, possibly
several, serious studies showing that secrecy about salaries caused an
overall decrease in salaries and worsening in workplace interaction. It
is a management technique of the "divide and conquer" type to avoid
workers from organizing to get decent salaries.

The only people who should be attached to salary secrecy are the people
who at some level realize that they are payed way more than they deserve
(finance, marketing, etc.). For people whose work has actual value, like
you, this attachment is only the result of propaganda and detrimental to
