The same reason we're talking about pay scales at all on a LUG list,
because sometimes discussions go off-topic... If you re-read the
thread the progression is quite clear.

I don't think there's anything from with 46-56k for a university gig,
especially when coupled with tuition discounts, reduced hours (I heard
somewhere Dal IT does 32.5 hours a week) etc.

I stand by "if you can't find a sysadmin in Halifax you're doing
something fundamentally wrong" though.
