Don't you guys know a "come-on" ad when you see one?  And
to answer Mark's question:  a guy with 15+ years' experience
can expect to be offered an entry level compensation.  That's
the name of the game these days.

Today, the scam is not the classical bait-and-switch.  It is

Under the new technique, that to which you are switched becomes
the bait for the next switch, and so on, and so on...

So, if you ask for $1,200/day, the recruiter will lead you on
to believe that he might be willing to pay that much.  When
you are in his office, he'll say that he can pay you only $600
per day.  If you agree to that, then an alarm goes off in
the recruiter's head that flashes "SUCKER ON THE LINE!!!"

Before you know it, the $600/day prospect dissolves into the
sunset, and the next thing he presents to you is a prospect
at $500/day, then a prospect at $400/day, then... OK, I think
you've gotten the progression by now!

Happy trails to you, until we meet again...
