When that happens, the question of how much each person makes tends to come up. Should we share that info with each other or not?
- YES: When you are in your job for the long haul, the information will definitely be helpful in future negociations.
- NO: When you are in a short-term gig, you won't be able to make use of the information. When one of you realizes that they are being paid less than the other, it will create resentment.
However, if one of you is not sure what the going rates are, it's ok to tell how much you both make once the gig is done, for future reference.
