I know an HR dude at my work. It is his job to pay people as little as possible when they come on board. It is the employees job to get paid as much as possible when the accept the position. This situation is described as a ‘negotiation.

With my last couple of places, my HR does a "equity check" to make sure the offer is not too low.

Not political correctness on their part, but they've been burned by EEOC before.

What is too low? If the employee accepts it, it isn’t too low.

If an NFL linemen signs a 4 million a year contract to play line and then, two days later another player (who he feels he is better than) signs a 7.5 million dollar a year contract....has some sort of wrong occurred? No.

The former dude just didn’t understand his value as much as the latter dude. With all that said, it is in the interest of the company to keep their names out of the paper and their employees happy.
