New York City just banned bosses from asking this sensitive question
from The Washington Post
It's the interview question no applicant likes: How much did you make in your last job? The New York City Council isn't fond of it, either. In a vote Wednesday, it approved legislation that will ban employers from asking job applicants about what they make in their current or past job and could have far-reaching consequences beyond the city as employers try to standardize their practices. It's an idea that's starting to spread: In passing the measure, New York City joins Massachusetts, Puerto Rico and the city of Philadelphia in banning the question from job interviews. More than 20 other city and state legislatures have introduced similar provisions.
