Now I know what to say when they ask for my salary history.

Date: 1/12/00

I would like to commend you on the article you posted on-line about salary and who's business is it?

I find as a Senior Network Consultant this is always a "problem". I have been doing this for a while and this one thing has always caused me great heartburn. Employers should not even be allowed to ask. It's my business.

I used to answer that question with a question: What does this position pay? Needless to say I probably missed out on some opportunities due to my passive-aggressive attitude. Now I have the ammo I need to politely confront this issue. Thanks.

- A.I., Network Engineer
