 I work front desk at a property for $12.00/hr. That's a very good starting salary.

I write software for small company that dental insurance companies use to combat fraud and abuse as well as managing their provider networks.  It's really cool because I can easily see how such business intelligence tools would serve private defense agencies. 

It is as free market as you can get without putting yourself at risk. 

Anyone who wants a job that pays should get into tech and move here.  Nashua has a huge foreign population because natives don't have the job skills these companies need.  Half of our company are Indian. Microsoft .NET developers are in high demand.  I get calls and emails from head hunters weekly with job offers and inquiries into if I know any developers looking. 

Unfortunately I hate microsoft and want to retool my skillset out of that platform but that will talk time.

I've thought about learning about the C#/.Net rout, but I never see anything that is truly entry level.  Everyone wants .Net people, but only if you have 5 years experience.  Seems pointless to even try to break in.  The same seems true about a lot of other programming work as well, but .Net internships/first professional job type gigs seem impossible to come by.

   I am a railroad contractor working on a new signal system. It is a very political enviroment, unions and non-union contractors. But the wide array of skills that I am obtaining and the excellent pay will serve me well in the future. Contractor work has been one of the prime motivators for my move to ancaps.
