It a Win Question, not a No-Win one
It's been stated over and over in this thread -- know what you're worth. I've been very fortunate in my career in that I haven't had any long periods of unemployment so I have been able to hold out for a salary that meets my requirements (and desires). It's going to be harder for those who are more desparate due to extended unemployment, but after a year or two of rebuilding credit even they will be ready to renegotiate or move on. And as AS400 notes, salary should be off the table unless it's part of an employment offer.
