People Are Pointing Out Double Standards They're Sick Of, And This Really Gets My Blood Boiling
"How it’s perfectly okay for a potential employer to ask your salary expectations, but a candidate asking what the job pays is somehow a red flag."
I'm sure I don't have to point out to you that life isn't fair sometimes.
Unfortunately, there were all too many responses calling out the unfairness of today's society. Here are some of the top-voted answers:
6. "Why is dental insurance different from health insurance? Aren't teeth part of my overall health? WTH!"
"Lack of dental care can easily kill or cause significant damage to your body, and, at the very least, cause social and mental issues. It is ridiculous that teeth are not included."
7. "How it’s perfectly okay for a potential employer to ask your salary expectations even before an interview, but a candidate asking what the job pays is somehow a red flag for HR and a big no-no."
"Like, if all the employer cares about is what I will cost them (before learning anything else about me), then I should be able to fucking ask too. But no, I’m branded as only caring about money. And you don’t, you corporate prick?"
"I've literally heard this line when asking about salary: 'If you're in this for the paycheck, this might not be the job for you.' What the fuck? Why the fuck is anyone here?"
15. And finally, "Consumers are expected to curb their plastic waste and carbon (by corporations and regulatory bodies alike) while companies will destroy a natural habitat to make bottled water in plastic bottles. And they would dump the waste into your grandma's urn if it was affordable."
