And forgive me for my ignorance of non IT hiring, but what's the problem with that?
If you tell them what you're willing to work for they can legally pay you below the fair market value if you don't know what the average wages for your job are. It gives them a legal out to short change their employees.
Who the fuck doesn't know the average wage for his field unless he's entry level? I'm assuming professional work and not data entry or consumer service jobs.
