There's a lot of truth to this, especially in markets that are heating up after several years of employers being able to use "be happy you have a job" to get away with low pay and poor working conditions. But pay is not the only consideration. Over the years, I have passed on offers that were higher than what I was making at the time, or taken pay cuts to work for companies where I considered the working environment to be more conducive to my being able to go home at night feeling good about my job, and as the market continues to improve, I think we'll be seeing people with the experience and skills that employers need becoming more picky about which job postings they'll hit the "Apply" or "Reply" button for.
