This - we really need a law requiring companies post what the jobs pays. It would solve so many problems - including ones like this, gender discrimination, etc.



In California, employers are required to disclose salary ranges for jobs if asked by prospective employees.


The range can be pretty wide though.


How do you know they’re disclosing the budgeted range and not just what they “want” to pay?

A much simpler solution: if lots of programmers would strongly avoid to take jobs at companies that do not tell the salary upfront, the problem would disappear by itself.
