I want to say "report them" ?

At first glance that smells like fraud?

Report them for what? They technically offered within their posted salary range.

This is just how companies will side-step regulations requiring they post a salary range. Always assume the pay is the bottom number and be prepared to be told about some "potential earned incentive" opportunities when you fight it.

Skip that job and go to the next one lol. They're ganna definitely have a bunch of people not taking it and then bump their standards to half way $23-$24. Unless someone desperately needs that job. I've seen a job I applied for raise their salary range after a few months because no nobody wanted that job.

Really? My first thought is that this person clearly doesn’t have the relevant experience they’re claiming to have

$21 no matter what implies to me that the company is complying with the law in writing only.

Now. If person above said "for you based on your experience we will pay $21" well, that's a different matter entirely.

They were asking for 2-3 years of relevant experience in about 3 areas. I have between 6-8 years in every area and according to their own words killed the interview.

I was everything they were hoping to find and more according to the manager that offered me the job. Unfortunately they're budgeting $21 per hour for this role with incentive opportunities and a benefits package, lol.

It's alright, I'm going back to college next fall and I found a job willing to pay me the $26-$27 range I'm worth until then.

So the person who hires you is always going to say that.

Best of luck going back to school. I was in your shoes and went back to grad school as an adult and am much happier now
