No matter their age or race, a third of workers don’t believe that employees in their company are paid fairly. In fact, 34 percent say they believe their pay is based on managers’ or supervisors’ “feelings” on what they deserve to make, instead of being based on performance, experience, or skills.

That’s according to a study from beqom that also finds 48 percent of workers believing that men are paid more than women at their company. At the industry level, U.S. workers believe men are paid more than women in technology (34 percent), banking and finance (23 percent), health care and medical (13 percent), and education and higher education (5 percent)—regardless of skill, performance, and experience.

So, not surprisingly, the study finds that workers want—and are creating—pay transparency, with 45 percent admitting they know what their colleagues make and 46 percent admitting that they’ve talked about their salary with colleagues. Still, old habits die hard; younger workers are more likely to talk salary with co-workers than are older staff, with 56 percent of millennials saying they’d share their salary details with colleagues compared with just 27 percent of baby boomers. Awkward as those money conversations might be, 66 percent of workers would tell colleagues their salary than discuss their sex life (20 percent).
