This is always a hot topic and I hate “averages” but at least this will give you some reference points. Keep these two things in mind when you are talking about salaries. 1. Supply and demand in different specialties always have a bearing on current wage scales, and 2. geography has a lot to do with it.
If you make $90,000 a year in California but have to pay $2500 for a 2 bedroom apartment (plus other cost of living expenses) you could be better off making $70,000 in Phoenix where you might get that same apartment for $900. Just a thought…… Just be sure to do a little research.
This short article and excellent documentation will give you some nice up to date averages.
