Salaries are industry and regional dependent. Someone documenting=
how to
repair pin ball machines (a friend of mine does) probably isn't going=
make as much as someone documenting the latest software package.

There is an STC salary survey that you might want to look up. In=
the San
Francisco Bay area high 20's low 30's is realistic for strating TWs.=
At a
regional STC meeting last night, I did hear that some companies oin=
the NE
were payong $ for contract wages. If that's the case move,=
miss the snow and scraping of windshields, but=8A
