Markets don't become unsaturated, prices adjust to maintain saturation.

There has been a sudden drop in demand. Prices and supply didnt have a chance to adjust yet. So I would say currently (for next EL hiring season), markets will be saturated with candidates.

should we all knock our EL salaries by 10% to account for this? Seems like we are just giving away money if the market is saturated and we just pay full price anyway. /evilcorporatethought

If a company can get away with paying competent EL staff for $40k, it will. And if applicants think that's too low, they'll choose something else. If one of the world's largest companies can slash salaries by 20% overnight and then raise them back up overnight with cherries and cream on top, any company can.
