Default Northern CO wages

Here in northern CO, it depends on who you work for. If you work for LE like I do, it runs from about $12 up to about $22 being the highest I have heard of in the Denver metro area.

If you work for a non-profit, then it is more like $7-$9 for a humane society, SPCA, etc.

About May 2005 National, State, and Metropolitan Area Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates

These estimates are calculated with data collected from employers in all industry sectors in metropolitan and non-metropolitan areas in every State and the District of Columbia. The top five employment and wage figures are provided above. The complete list is available in the downloadable Excel files (XLS).

Percentile wage estimates show the percentage of workers in an occupation that earn less than a given wage and the percentage that earn more. The median wage is the 50th percentile wage estimate--50 percent of workers earn less than the median and 50 percent of workers earn more than the median. More about percentile wages.



(1) Estimates for detailed occupations do not sum to the totals because the totals include occupations not shown separately. Estimates do not include self-employed workers.

(2) Annual wages have been calculated by multiplying the hourly mean wage by a "year-round, full-time" hours figure of 2,080 hours; for those occupations where there is not an hourly mean wage published, the annual wage has been directly calculated from the reported survey data.

(3) The relative standard error (RSE) is a measure of the reliability of a survey statistic. The smaller the relative standard error, the more precise the estimate.

Wow, I can't believe some of the hourly wages for ACO's in some states. I am a HLEO/ACO for Long Island New York and my hourly wage is almost $30.00 and hour (that is including night diff.)

I guess I am really lucky. In one of the poor states, I make 12.608 an hour. We do not get over time at all but the comp time is nice, and I am on a 40 hour work week, and can pick what days I want to work 8-4, or 11-7pm. I do get 2 fridays off a month but I have to work that Saturday. (anyone else working Saturdays and doing pickups?)

I feel a little better now. Iím topped out a $17, and another city about 10 miles down the road hires in ACO 2 @ $18, so I though I was at the bottom of the average.

As has been mentioned before, don't go just by the dollar sign. Making $21/hr in the Bay Area, where rents are $1200-1500 a month and cost of living is high, may not leave you "better off" than making $15 where rents and cost of living is cheaper. Here's a salary converter:

http://cgi.money.cnn.com/tools/costo...tofliving.html

Enter your current salary (if you get paid hourly, that's your hourly rate times 2080. Example: $15.75 x 2080 = $32,760/yr) and your current location, as well as the location you're interested in moving. It will show you how much you need to make to have the same standard of living.

For example, using the salary converter, a person making $35K a year ($16.80/hr) in El Paso would need to make $66K a year ($31.75/hr) in San Francisco, to maintain the same lifestyle.

We have several Californians living in the Ft. Worth area now, and the main two differences they always tell me about is 1, state income tax (we ainít got one), and 2, cost of living. My $130,000 house would sell for close to $500,000 in California. Property tax in big C is quite a bit cheaper, but everything else seems to be about 10% - 15% more expensive.

Yeah, doing that conversion I was kind of startled myself ... housing is 239% more expensive in SF ... have I mentioned that I hate rich people lately? (You do KNOW who is buying up all the real estate that the poor people are getting kicked out of, right???)
