Q: I graduated last year with dual degrees. I am licensed to practice in New York, but I also want to use my other degree. The problem is that public interest work pays poorly, and I have a family and massive loans.

How can I find out how much a prospective employer is willing to pay? I do not want to waste time going to interviews where I cannot possibly take the job and make ends meet. If I do go to an interview blindly, how can I delicately ask about salary?
