Did interviews ask more questions about pay as you got older?

When I was 20 they ask just one question about pay..... now that i am 25 nothing has changed in interviews.......

The degrading questions continue (like insulting the architecture of the projects that I have worked on) and they still feel that they have the upper hand. And saying "where are you from .. are you from goa India or real India". I was born in Canada. Business people are pigs.

They don't ask that directly, but they always ask when I got my old BS degree in physics, not my recent MS degree in Computer Science.

I wonder why.

Sorry to be a bit off the track but who are calling themselves Arjun in here?
