+ - Should Younger Developers be Paid More?-> 1

Submitted by jammag
jammag (1021683) writes "A project manager describes facing an upset senior developer who learned that a new hire — a fresh college grad — would be making 30 percent more than him. The reason: the new grad knew a hot emerging technology that a client wanted. Yes, the senior coder was majorly pissed off. But with the constant upheaval in new technology, this situation is almost unavoidable — or is it? And at any rate, is it fair?"

Should Younger Developers be Paid More?

  • How did the senior developer find out what the new hire was paid anyway? Any time stuff like this leaks out, it's never pretty. That being said, one should be paid based on one's value and contribution to the organization and supply and demand -- not strictly on seniority. And...yes...I'm over 50 and work hard everyday to keep my skill set up-to-date.

People will buy anything that's one to a customer.
