Woman Goes Viral For Demanding Employers Include The Salary Amount On Job Listings

It’s the bane of all of those on the job hunt – seeing the perfect job but the salary is not included in the listing.

A TikTok user has gone viral after calling on employers to include the salary expectations on a job listing to save everybody from wasting their time.

User Maysun’s (@maysunmilk) video has been viewed nearly two million times, with people from all over the world agreeing with her.

“I applied to a job where they didn’t list the pay. That was my fault. That was my bad. I should have known, red flag,” she says in the video.

Maysun goes on to say companies should “grow up” and “get a grip on reality”, and not wait until the interview is over before revealing the pay.

Maysun explains she was far along in the job hiring process before being told the job’s salary, which was much lower than she expected.

“We get to the end of the interview. He tells me the pay. It’s low,” she said.

“So he asks me how I’m feeling, [and] I said, ‘Frankly, the pay is low, and I can’t work for that.’

“I brought up that it wasn’t listed on the job listing, and he was like, ‘Yeah, you know, here’s the thing: There’s a lot more here to gain than just money, and we’re looking for people that are motivated by more than just money.’”=

Maysun explains why she has an issue with being told that there’s more to the job than money.

“This is what I mean when I say they need to grow up. I don’t know what fantasy world you’re living in where people are letting you pay them in, like, gold star stickers or whatever the f***, but I live in the real world where people need money to survive,” she said.

Thousands others agreed, saying employers needed to understand people needed money to survive.

“I am SO tired of jobs pretending like we show up for ANY other reason than the money. Lol,” one said.

“‘Opportunities to grow’ how about the opportunity to keep my apartment,” another added.
