Imagine a world where all job listings have the wage or salary range displayed. Think of all the hours you could save by knowing the pay is too low for what you need -- before you put hours into #resumes and #applications.

THE GOOD NEWS: Some states are making this law. In most cases, the objective of the new rules is to narrow the gender wage gap: If companies are obliged to publish salaries, they will find it harder to underpay women. But more generally, young employees will benefit from knowing what they and their peers are paid.

Salary transparency has been a trending concept over the past 10 years, do you think this will be common in the next 10 years? #jobsearch #WageTransparency #NoMoreGames

The starting pay should be mandatory for all jobs, why would you say yes and not know the pay!! It's absorbed that people are afraid of the companies that line their pockets for the best help at a lower coast. That they interview people looking for the best candidate without paying much for the company. these candidates often feel underappreciated for what they can bring to the table. It's not about the company it's about you. What you want and desire and if this does not fit your protocol than why waste your time. I will be too old to benefit in ten years, it should be from the past, the present and the future now!!

I certainly hope so. I announce my pay anywhere I work because it's against the law for any employer to tell you that you can't.

I know the argument against it is that people (idiot people frankly) see a high salary and decide to go for something for which they aren't even remotely qualified. I actually heard someone try this, so it is a legitimate concern.

On the other hand, if I see a salary that's way too high, I usually know it's not for me (altho I've had to adjust my salary expectations up, I learned I've actually been way underpaid). And if the pay is too low, I'll ignore the posting, saving everyone's time. I also had a boss who didn't like telling the pay in hopes he would get someone who didn't know how much he should get paid. (he or she sorry)

If things keep trending in the way of the employee in this job market, maybe 3-5 years?
