    I am a network analyst / network support guy (A+ and MCP) and, while I agree that we are worth
    $14/hr, no company is going to pay you more because you need more. In other words, a company usually
    has a budget for a position. They will find someone that is willing to work for that salary. If you
    have a job and you ask your boss for a raise on the basis that you need more money for living
    expenses, you wont get the raise. You would need to cite the added responsibilities you have taken
    on or the project that you took on that saved the company tons of money. But never "I want a raise
    because I need more money for my bills". A boss's response would be to get a cheaper apartment or
    sell your car and buy a used one. That will solve your problems.

    I am not flaming you. I am in your position. I am just pointing out that mom and pop can pay
    whatever they feel it is worth it for them to have a computer technician. If it makes you feel any
    better, the local CompUSA here on long Island only pays $13/hr and they pressure you to sell rather
    than to repair but you get a whopping 1/2% of the selling price..
