every company claims "we pay well" but their claim mostly is based on what they
pay their current employees or what they pay other techy personnel or on the
budget provided by management.  You have to look at years of experience, how 
many
industries (e.g. financial, manufacturing, retail), education of each 
individual,
of cause real cost of living, and other areas (e.g. PC, NETWORKING) because most
professionals today have background that exceeds the AS400.
