    I don't care how much you earn honestly. I do care about averages for job titles so that I can use that information to negotiate my wages.

    Quoted for truth. Who on Earth thinks it's a good idea to make everyone's income a matter for public consumption? Talk about a violation of privacy.

    It is when that's already covered by existing legislation.

    Well, you aren't owed that information. You don't have a right to force people into labor to compile whatever information you desire at the current time. We have an amendment against that kind of government action and everything.

    We are talking about commerce, so all transactions are separate from all others that occur. The only thing your equality argument works towards is rights, and there is no right to commence in commerce or to get a job with a certain level of pay.

    Sure...just like I'm not owed a companies financial information or owed information on a car I'm about to buy but it sure does help markets operate.
