The most I was making on a job is $35.00 an hour, but thats full time 7.25 hr a day. I working for a new Boss today and I'm getting paid less, but where I'm living now they pay peannuts for programmers, so I getting actually double of the going rate. Its sort of sad. But I guess the cost of living is much less here to.
