Is this an old concept or were you taught the same?

I have always been taught that salary or how much you make is not something you discuss with others. My own family doesn't know what we make.

Is this an old practice or were you taught the same?

We don't discuss it either. Its common knowledge in our family. But all the men have the same job.

I was taught it's fine to tell family what you make and even close friends but not strangers.

It's the polite, proper custom to follow, and is still practiced....except here on CM.

I think it's been mentioned in passing, but no ones ever had an issue discussing it .

I don't know that I was taught it (my parents never told me that was right or wrong, but they never talked about it) but I won't talk about it with anyone who doesn't need to know. Which is essentially only my accountant.

My mom always made it known to us how much she made so that we would know how to budget our food shopping and not go overboard. I don't see it as taboo if someone asks i tell.

I wasn't taught anything on this, but I feel it's private.
