I'm Asking: Have You Ever Quit During Salary Negotiations?

I'm Asking: Have You Ever Quit During Salary Negotiations?

Last night Paula Abdul announced on her Twitter that she won't be returning to American Idol next season. Paula hasn't given a reason, but it's rumored that she was making $5 to $8 million per season and wanted more . . . a lot more.

There could be millions of reasons why Paula chose to exit stage left, but stories about contract and negotiation disputes suggest she decided to make the move when she didn't get what she wanted.

Negotiating for a job or salary increase can be incredibly frustrating and challenging. Sadly, employers can't always — and often don't — give us what we want. Have you ever walked away from a job after a tough negotiation?
