Woman reapplies for her own job after seeing it listed for a higher salary online

A New York woman has been left shocked after discovering her job was listed online for a higher salary... Yikes!

Kimberly Nguyen works in the Big Apple as a user experience (UX) writer when she noticed the company she was working for had placed a job posting on LinkedIn. To her surprise, Kimberly discovered that her employer was offering an advertised salary range of "$32k-$90k more than they currently pay me."

According to an employment transparency law in New York, employers are obligated to disclose salary ranges for all advertised jobs and promotions.

Furious, Kimberly took to Twitter to vent her disappointment in a series of tweets that have since gone viral. "My company just listed on LinkedIn a job posting for what I'm currently doing (so we’'e hiring another UX writer) and now thanks to salary transparency laws, I see that they intend to pay this person $32k-$90k more than they currently pay me, so I applied."

"I don't want to hear one more peep out of them about diversity, equity, and inclusion. I don't wanna see any more of our C-suite execs recommend books for women's history month. There were tangible actions they could've taken and they chose to perform these values. No thank you," the disgruntled employee added.

She continued in a subsequent tweet: "I have also been arguing for months about the pay inequity. I have told my managers multiple times that I know I'm being underpaid. I have gotten the runaround, and they know they can do this right now in a tough labor market."

Kimberly then went on to say that the job posting had been removed from LinkedIn, before being published again, revealing: "They're saying it was an internal posting and wasn't meant for anyone to apply to externally because public companies legally have to post jobs even if it's an internal conversion...but that doesn't solve the fact that someone internally is now still going to make $32k+ more???"

Evidently, the issue went to a company meeting, with Kimberly updating her Twitter on what had been said between her managers and fellow employees. Apparently, the company argued that the advertisement was "internal" and had only been meant for internal applicants, not for external applicants. They then told Kimberly that public companies "legally" have to post jobs even if it's an internal conversion.

"But that doesn't solve the fact that someone internally is now still going to make $32k+ more [...]," she wrote.

The series of tweets have been viewed over 12 million times, with Kimberly concluding her vent by saying her company had mentioned laying off certain employees, and adding that she was available for remote UX work.
