Yes an employer should post wages on a white board. Entry level $$, tier1 $$, tier 2 $$ and so on. As an employee you strive to get to the next level. I can tell you there's a lot of jealousy and suspicion about wages and it causes lots of problems . Isn't the military like that? Structured. Private, Corporal, first class , second class. I see no problem with this one.
