I just want to clear something up here.

This graduate from engineering (and science--the department was in the process 
of switching when I graduated) did not start out making $30k+.  Granted, I 
didn't start out making $18k, either.  My situation is pretty typical of the 
grads today.  There are a lot of people out there with tons of experience who 
are willing to work for almost nothing just so they can feed their families.

And don't think that I am not helping people in my profession.  I am working on 
products that make Audiologists' and Hearing Aid Dispensers' jobs easier, and 
to help these people serve others better.
