tell me about it :-( I wonder though; I'm i social services and there's no way in hell you make 6 figures in that field. Maybe the engineers balanced us out.

I think the survey is skewed as I now lots of people in the reptile hobby who are self-employed and trade based. The latter group was likely excluded due to the high unemployment in the trades during the period surveyed.

Huh, I used to be a social worker - and I make a lot more money now that I'm not! How are those things weighted I wonder? Police officers don't make a ton either, nor do most writers.

Must be all those BP breeders skewing the reported income :-)
