The pay's not bad -- it's even decent

Posted by Kristi Heim at 11:14 AM

Some surprising news from the latest Yoh Index wage statistics: Tech workers made more money per hour last quarter than they have since 2001. Wages rose 3.1 percent over last year to an average of $30.27 per hour. That's an 11 percent increase over the same period in 2001.

Yoh Vice President Jim Lanzalotto attributed the rise to the need for more information security and enterprise software specialists and healthcare technology for aging baby boomers. For the jobs in greatest demand, pay ranged from $75 an hour for an SAP functional consultant to $38.52 for a clinical research associate. Apparently figuring out how to manage SAP applications makes lab work seem like child's play.

The Yoh Index is based on data from 5,000 workers "outsourced" for technology projects by U.S. companies. No mention of stock options in the report.
