The Ladder's preys on the illusion that there are such things as "$100K+ jobs," when in fact there are truly just "$100K+ employees." Someone either does or doesn't have what it takes to add enough value to warrant that salary. People who can bring more than 100K in added value to a company probably don't need to use a site like the Ladders to get a job.

I agree, but it's still hard to add $100K as a McDonald's server - clearly, some jobs make it easier to add that much value than others.

Surely that goes for employees at any salary level be it $10K, $100K or $1000K?
