My trade salary has gone down, apparently

Mind That Age!

This blog post is 13 years old! Most likely, its content is outdated. Especially if it's technical.

Sorry about the cryptic title. My actual salary has not gone down but if you are to believe this chart the salary (in the US) for "Web programmer/developer (back end systems)" has gone down with 2.2% in the last five years but actually gone up by 8.2% in the last year.

What is quite interesting is that of "Content developer" which has seen a rise of 6.5% in the last five years. I guess that's the blogging. More and more people get employed now just to blog about a particular industry. This seems to be a modern trend that we'll see more and more of now that setting up a blog of your own is so much easier (I wrote mine from scratch :). I wonder where these "content developers" come from; their individual technical industries such as programming or design or if they come from literary background like book writing.

Anyway, looks like the general trend is that all salaries have gone up from 2004 to 2005.


kanske lite för mycket fritid? Hur går kampsporterit? Jag har ju för närvarande inte en susning att vinna över dig i brottning. baba o'riley, the who. lyssna genast sa jag. pung.
