    I always figured the best way to get the raise you think you deserve is to get a new job. That way you avoid the bullshit 3 percent so many papers are shoveling (though there's a 4 percent cost of living increase each year), and you advance your career. Unfortunately for some with families, up and leaving is easier said than done.

    This was very interesting to read. I had one recent interview a few years back and they asked me what I made and I told them. Turned out I made too much, so they essentially eliminated me.

    So, let's say they ask, how should you answer tactfully?

    Personally, I've never had anyone ask, so I haven't had to answer. But, if I did, I'd respond by asking them, "What does my current salary, or salary history, have to do with the job opening at your paper?" Sure, some editor may not like that answer and cross me off the list, but I just don't think it's any of their business what I have made in the past. Just offer me what you think I'm worth.
