You are interviewing for a job you really want. The employer says that the hourly rate is $15.00 an hour, and he has a few other candidates to interview. Then he states that you can have the position right now for $10.00 an hour. Now knowing it is worth $15 do you except the position hoping to get to the desired rate down the road? You think you do not need as much as the next guy because house is paid for, no kids at home, etc... How would you feel everyday that every other employee makes $5 more per hour? My answer is no way would any of us do this. The employer knows we will settle for less and never get us to the proper level. We would rely on the belief that we are better then the others, and we will get the position if we just hold out. If we do not get hired, then we will look for the next opportunity. So why do we do this if we are an LCO? Don't get me wrong not all my accounts are where they should be, but that is the main thing I am going to change.
