Got the tipoff from @hsivaram’s twitter post. Interesting and exciting info -
IT professionals with these in-demand skills are expected to earn the following salaries in 2010:
* Flash developer: $75,000-$100,000
* Flex developer: $90,000-110,000
* PHP/LAMP developer: $85,000-100,000
* Ruby on Rails: $75,000-95,000
* CRM developer: $80,000-110,000
While the Bluewolf research was primarily focused on salaries in the New York, Connecticut, New Jersey area salaries — which are approximately 25% higher than the national average — Bluewolf said salary increases in other areas of the country will follow the trend, just at lower base levels.
All the more reason, you should move to Flex!!!
I don’t know whether this is a good move or a bad one. On one angle, in the light of news like this, it seems that increasing government salaries is the right thing to do. It might attract the younger generation to look at government jobs as a career.
On the other hand, I feel bad that more of my tax money is going to go to people who sit on their asses doing nothing. As it is, any Indian knows what kind of treatment can be expected in the government office. Now, I hate to be paying them more from my pocket and then get insulted. But, I hope that atleast bribery and corruption comes down a bit after a pay hike.
If you look at what used to happen 10-12 years ago, when government servants used to be paid as much or as well as the private sector. But today, its very different. Today, private sector salaries are 10 times government salaries, especially at the top. So in India, people in the government are sort of overstaffed, overpaid and under worked at the bottom and understaffed, overworked and underpaid at the top. This has to change if you want the government to do well.

Now you know where our taxes are going…. I wonder if they had to undergo a performance appraisal like us…
The President has just got a big raise with the Cabinet deciding to double the pay packet from 50,000 to one lakh rupees a month.
The Vice-President’s salary has also been raised from 40,000 to 85,000 rupees.
The Governors’ salaries have been increased from 36,000 to 75,000 rupees.
Parliamentary Affairs Minister Priya Ranjan Dasmunshi said the raise was necessary as MPs were earning more than the Vice-President, who is the Chairman of the Rajya Sabha.
Even former Presidents emoluments have been doubled and more facilities have been sanctioned for the spouses of late Presidents and Vice-Presidents.
The increase in emoluments would come into effect from January 1 last year.
The hike was necessitated as Members of Parliament have a Rs 68,000 pay packet while the presiding officer of the Rajya Sabha drew less than them, Dasmunsi said.
Former Presidents’ emoluments have also been doubled to Rs six lakh a year, while more facilities have been sanctioned for the spouses of late Presidents and Vice-Presidents.
Dasmunsi said the decision to increase the salary had been taken last year itself, but since the then President and Vice-President were retiring, it was deferred.[ Source: NDTV.com: Prez, Governors get salary bonanza ]
