Sometimes, when reading excessively long posts, I skip
over something which merits a response. Your comment (below) is truly
sad. For at least the past three years, the starting compensation
packages for entry level structural engineers with MSCE degrees in
Dallas has been at or above $50K. This applies not only to the larger
employers, but also to many of the smaller consulting firms. In addition,
Dallas offers affordable housing (<$150K) and Texans still have no income
tax. We also don't have any need for recall elections
Truly, we live in two very different
In fact, I doubt that the 10-engineers who work in this valley
servicing over 100,000 people has a net annual income exceeding $50,000.00 and
the average cost of a modest home has just hit $260,000.00.
