Been Out of the World for a Bit

Well, the job market world that is. Six years in the military, four on the GI Bill, and two more on a TA stipend. Generally, the pay was always a bit low, but it was secure and reasonable for what I did.

I have no idea what constitutes decent pay these days. Apparently minimum wage hasn’t changed since I was in high school (13 years ago), and I am aware enough to know that doesn’t make for reasonable paychecks.

This is making the job hunt much more difficult.

I do know, roughly, how much I want to make, how much I need to make, and what’s reasonable for the jobs I’m applying for. Yet sometimes this doesn’t seem to add up.
