When I look to hire people, I ask what kind of money they are looking for and
then decide if I want them enough to pay it, negotiate it, or pass. What
someone made in a previous job is really not my business.

It's been many moons since I last filled out a job application.
However, is current and previous pay information requested on any of
the job application you folks have filled out?
