I just found out that my coworker is being paid 10% more than I am. She does the same work that I do and has only been here for a year longer than I have. My boss has always seemed happy with my work and I’ve never been one to push for more money, but as you can imagine, I’m extremely demoralized by this. Can I use my knowledge of my coworker’s salary to argue that I should be getting paid more?
