I work for a large retail chain. I sell luggage on a commission only basis. At my store I receive 3 percent on what I sell. At other stores they receive 6.5 percent for the exact same work environment. These stores are all located in the Baltimore-Washington area.
Is it legal for different stores of the same company, in the same area, to pay different rates of commission?



Yes, there is no law stating that the same employer has to pay all employees in the different stores in the same geographical location the same amount of money. Sorry.
