Discussing salaries is one of the biggest taboos in the workplace. Everyone is curious about how much their workmates earn but would never dare to ask. In this remarkable TV experiment one of Britain’s top bosses, Charlie Mullins, the Managing Director of Pimlico Plumbers, takes it upon himself to encourage a more open working environment by asking his workforce to reveal how much they are paid. When the reveal exposes huge pay discrepancies, creating a terrible atmosphere, Charlie challenges them to come up with a new pay scheme that’s fairer for everyone. But will the experiment result in a better and more productive working environment for everyone?
