Remember the recent posting about a TW job in Northern VA that commanded a
tiny salary?

Here's another, courtesy of the January _Capital Letter_ (the newsletter
of our friendly neighborhood STC chapter).

"Technical Writer. To prepare finished correspondence, studies, and
papers. Participates in developing technical publications and manuals
that conform to U.S. Navy requirements. Applicants must be familiar with
computer word processing and graphics software and have at last 2 years
experience in a technical environment. This is a full-time position in
Crystal City, Arlington, VA. [That's right across the river from
Washington, DC. It is also close to the Pentagon.] Salary range is [drum

********* $20,000 to $24,000 *********

depending on qualifications and experience. If interested, please phone
[name, company, phone number deleted]."

This company also wants a tech. editor with a BS or BA and five years of
experience. For this, the company will pay the munificent sum of $30,000
to $35,000.

There were three other ads, and they didn't give their salary ranges. I
sure hope they aren't that low, too.

What in the heck is going on here? Have y'all noticed anything similar
happening in your neck of the woods?
