From Alister William Macintyre

This BPCS_L place is extremely educational, 100,000 times better than its 
competition & also I sometimes learn from browsing the archives.

I do not know of anything that is BPCS specific but there are AS/400 
statistics that show up periodically in the AS400network newsletters that 
originate with Vail consulting.  There might also be something relevant in 
the general manufacturing or ERP or software quality web sites, but it seems 
to me that salaries are closely linked to skills like with specific 
languages, OS, job functions that might exist on Unix but are totally 
automated on OS/400, whatever is the latest new e-hot, and whatever 
consultants can get away with.


You can look at what consultant companies charge, like $125.00 an hour or is 
that a day to visit your site to work on some project, but I expect the 
consultant company gets a chunk of that which the actual technician never 
sees.  I do not make anything like that, but then I have decent job security.

Noodle around one of these places - they may have old articles of relevance

You might also link to user groups which in turn have tons of other 400 links 
- ethics of the groups will ban direct mention of salary data

http://www.techrepublic.com/index.jhtml ... this place is not really 400, 
although there are some 400 discussions there ... it does have rather 
extensive resources on careers & training & IT hiring issues.
