🤑 Show me the money!

Published On: November 10th, 2023

How much does this job pay? It’s a common question for job seekers but not many companies voluntarily post salaries, ’cause well, pay transparency is kinda expensive for them.

Things could be changing. There are a bunch of new laws and proposed bills that force employers to reveal ranges in job postings. Removing salary secrecy can help in several ways:

  • Forces employers to be more competitive with new and existing employees
  • Helps seekers identify low paying jobs, and saves everyone the bother of an interview
  • Removes pay gaps and boosts pay equality

The challenge is when companies post overly broad ranges to avoid real transparency, making the whole process meaningless. We shall see!

I’ve got a good mix of stuff for you today.
