A Toronto-based nonprofit, FoodShare, is now paying candidates who are offered an interview $75. CEO Paul Taylor says that prospective hires shouldn't "bear the costs of an interview," which could include commuting, transit costs or child care. And if candidates are required to complete an interview-related presentation, FoodShare "will financially compensate the candidate for that work at a rate equal to the hourly rate for the position." So should employers start paying candidates to take part in job interviews? Should you assign tasks to interviewees before hiring them? What does the future of hiring ethics look like?
