I just found out that my colleague makes 25k more than me. I make 35k and he makes 60k I struggle financially and I feel this is unfair, what do you guys think?

That level of disparity in the same position is insane. If your roles really are identical then I'd seriously be pissed off. It's a bit difficult to raise the issue though, because you aren't supposed to know what a colleague is on, it's confidential information. If I were you I'd still be seeing my manager and asking for more money. You can't mention your colleague but you can still ask for more. If they don't want to play ball then you should be looking elsewhere.0

A little thing called seniority, favoritism, and WHO they know, not what you know. If they're into some sort of union, club [if you want to call it that], and other stuff, they will get the money even without doing anything. All you can do is continue to do your job, see how it goes for a while. If you don't see that you're moving up with your job, then request an audience with your boss and ask for a higher pay if you have been on the job long enough to request that. At 90% of jobs out here, it's not about what's fair, it's who you are and what you are to them, especially if their 'racist'.0
