I agree $55/hr is very low, but wow, David, where you getting $140???

I would think somewhere in the range of 75-95 depending on experience is more in line.

No, I am only working part time at $140 per hour. I am winding down into retirement. Good luck with you search but as I said the pay is very low for the requirements.

You seem to be $30 to $40 per hour short based upon qualifications and job duties.
