Searching an offer to get a raise should be allowed

The Fish for a Raise Game - "Some applicants only want to get a job offer so they can go back to their current employer to ask for a raise."

I do not agree with this. Allow the applicant and if he gets a raise, then you don't want him anyways. Also if they get a raise, then your offer was not good enough. This should be a win-win for both applicant and employer.

If you are afraid of job-hoppers then stop paying below competitive rates. If you are afraid of looking bad, then don't offer unrealistic salaries or rates.

If you are an applicant and treated like this by your recruiter, I suggest you find a different recruiter. Most recruiters are only looking for one thing... and that is not the client nor the applicant. Low offers and high turn-overs are the lifeline of headhunters.
