Salary Reveal: Justified or Crossing the Line? 🎯

So, our protagonist found himself in a tricky situation: trying to participate in a work video meeting while taking care of his playful one-year-old son. When coworkers asked if his wife could watch the baby, he dropped the salary bomb, stating her job had more priority because she makes four times his salary. This led to an awkward silence and later, an email from his boss questioning his dedication to the job. Was it fair for him to reveal his wife's salary to justify his actions, or did he cross a line? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🧐💭
