that was supposed to mean salaries here in SA. I thought it was obvious, but maybe I just ASSumed too much there... and I also didn't want it to turn into a salary war. Everyone knows everybody on the intraweb makes oodles of cash and drives a different exotic car every day of the week..
What I meant was, the average SA salary is something like $36K I think. That's not bad and suits the local cost of living. I personally have seen IT work here as low as the insulting $20K's mentioned earlier up to where I currently am, which is fortunately quite a bit higher than that. I would say the average IT pay of $50 -$60K would be pretty accurate and I also know there is some that is well below that and others that are well above that. After I finish at least one Masters and get CISSP, I plan on joining the much higher ranks, but until then, I am very satisfied with what I am making and feel it is what I deserve.

I'm never satisfied...never! Less work-more income, is my motto.

Could of swore I saw a Maybach and a Bugatti parked at your house recently RD.

Well below what I make as well.

There are very different perceptions as to what are "good" and "excellent" salaries.
I wouldn't be a NA in NY for 55k

We know..we know....but when the disparity is so great, that's virtually eliminated.
