Should businesses pay people on a structured and distinct scale or allow employees to negotiate salaries?
Knowing that you are working in a defined salary structure means you know what to expect.
A defined salary structure offers a sense of stability and comfort as one knows their expectations of their income will be satisfied without any confusion or discussion.
Comparisons amongst people doing the same job are reduced, as a consequence there is less jealousy amongst others, since everyone knows exactly the equal amount others are getting.
It also means you do not have to wonder if others are making more money than you in the workplace.
It is never certain that everyone is on the same salary. Even with a "defined salary structure", there is never 100% guarantee everyone is being paid the same, there are almost always loopholes.
