19. Pay people, not addresses

Why do most companies cut your pay if you choose to move from San Francisco to Nashville? Companies hire people, they don’t hire mailing addresses. The same person produces the same work, no matter where they hang their hat. That’s why at 37signals, everyone in the same position gets paid the same, no matter where they live or who they are — anywhere in the world.
