in an immature market ...

... interviewees for your job might ask you to double their current salary without any apparent reason except they want to change houses
Begging? Are you kidding? We'll live in a big house on Harbour Road. You, me and Salim, the three musketeers. (Slumdog Millionaire)
... interviewees for your job might ask for a significant raise just because the local currency went down and car prices are still expressed in euros
There's a lot of very important decisions into buying a car. So we have to approach it as mature, responsible adults. (So Little Time)
... there is a crisis of managers
Deputy Arnold. He took a seminar in crisis management last year. (Leverage)
... if you are a smart engineer and have some above average communication skills, your employer will want to make you a manager; change the employer, same story
Me? Why me? I'm nobody. I'm the supervisor of a Nerd Herd, at a Buy More. Maybe someday I'll be assistant manager. but I don't even know if I want that job. (Chuck)
... employees are titled "senior" much earlier; the employer has to be inventive and come up with more titles ... senior++?
Oh, yes, I remember this case. A high school senior at age 12. (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation)
... some software engineers change jobs every year or so and get raises with each move they make; employers, when will you start rejecting such candidates solely based on this criterion?
To kill an infidel, the Pope has said, is not murder; it is the path to Heaven (Kingdom of Heaven)
... 10+ years of experience in the same field and you're a superstar
Travis Colt. Our local superstar. He used to race for Nascar... (Death Race)
