    The company I work for hired last year a person doing the same job as me and I know thier salary...they recently asked me to take the same position at $4,500 less and I have more experience...haven't they set a precedent or am I wrong to think they should offer the same?

    You could not possibly know the whole story. And, anyway, how did you learn the new guy's salary? Maybe the new guy is just a good negotiator. It is not unusual for new people to be brought in at a higher salary, if only because of the market in your area and type of job. In any case, there is no legal recourse here, because no laws have been violated.

    If you think you deserve a raise, document your case with your accomplishments, skills, experience, salary market research, etc., then make an appointment to discuss your future with the company with your manager. Do NOT mention someone else's salary or threaten to quit. That will just get you shown the door.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
