Paying for the best

Letters

Keith Burwell accuses employers of exploitation by withholding information regarding terms of employment (NCE 18 May). He also believes that by publishing salaries in job advertisements engineers would know their own market value.

How many good candidates would consider entering into an employment contract without fully understanding its terms and conditions and how many of those do not know their true worth ?

In my own experience, in the private sector, salaries are rarely published simply to allow some latitude at interview. There will always be good and very good engineers.

Salaries will reflect this fact with or without the assistance of the ICE or NCE.
