Did he say “xxxx makes $XXXXXX” or did he say “The xxxxxx position makes $XXXXX”?  Big difference between the two statements.

If he’s at a state or federal level government position, that information is free to anyone who asks for it. I know that my salary information is avalible on the web for anyone to find. 


ETA (I may or may not be guilty of looking up my coworkers salary information as well…)

@Sunflower–girl:  This — also, the salary grade or range information is often available to enployees through HR or an internal portal. If he used DH’s or another employee’s name, it’s inappropriate, but if it was a number attached to a title then I don’t see there being an issue.
