    Personally, I wouldn't get out of bed for that sort of
    money (currently earning roughly $60k). I would imagine
    that is about entry level for a desktop support

    "Would" implies a situation that is currently non-existant. Please change
    "would" to "am", and re-conjugate any verbs that may need it. Thank you.

    for 60K/annum, he also provides extra curicular services of a sexual nature
    on top of and over and above his IT responsibilities.

    otherwise, he would just be getting $35K/annum.

    Ugh! I can't ignore this post any more...

    Kwyjibo... if I were you, I would accept that pay... do your job the way you
    were hired... you can ask your employer for a raise if you feel you deserve
    it but don't be surprised if he says no. If you make too much noise and get
    fired or you quit, you will be out of a job for a while because the market
    sucks... then you will hunt for a job and may end up getting only
    $25,000/yr... if you have a job that is paying you that much, you can look
    around for higher pay but I would keep my mouth shut while looking... do
    your job... get a good reference... gain experience... EARN a pay raise...
    the economy is filled with people who are earning a lot less than you and
    deserve more and are just waiting for someone like you to step out of that
    job so they can earn more money... it is respectable pay... perhaps not as
    much as you want but the economy does not allow for greed in the IT field
    right now. Employers know that if they have a disgruntled employee, there
    are 1000's out there willing to work for your pay and less... so I would be
    careful what you wish for... using words like underpaid is not safe... some
    may look at that $35000 and wonder what the hell you are thinking... convert
    it to CDN funds so I can relate directly... and it works out to about
    $47,324/yr... that is more than I make annually and I have a lot of
    experience/training/certifications. The market just does not have the room
    for greed... you CAN be replace with someone who is willing to take whatever
    they can get to supply food for their family.
