That's good to hear, and surprising, because the contract pay I've been
quoted over the last few years from agencies was rock bottom, and I found
better-paying work on my own -- not working for companies. The recruiter
always would say that the "current market is depressed" or something like
that. I'd roll my eyes, of course.

I'm glad to hear that perhaps things have changed, though.
