"The more things change, the more things stay the same."
Nearly 6 years out of school, and after obtaining my license, I discovered
that an engineer 2 1/2 years out of school (and reporting to me) was making
more money than I. I'd been with the company nearly 4 years, and my modest
salary increases had not kept pace with the "law of supply and demand".
I joined a new company about 3 months later.
Now, over 30 years later, I'm self-employed and rarely get a salary
increase. In many markets, a new graduate can command more than I make.
But I am not eager to return to the "large engineering company"
environment. I like my clients too much. I like the kind of work that I
do. And I *don't* have to go to all those meetings.
