  •  Qualify (none)
    I should qualify my statement.  When I say that the pay is "not so great", I mean that it is still better than the majority of jobs, but not equivalent to what the same people could make if they chose careers in finance.  The reality is that it takes a certain degree of intelligence to get a chemistry degree and people with that level of intelligence can make more money majoring in finance.  It is the difference between starting at 40K and 70K.  Not bad in either case, but still very different.

    Pay for scientists was lagging before H1-B visas became an issure.  Lab jobs are cool. You make good money.  You get to wear blue jeans.  You get to set stuff on fire.  But American students, generally, are more interested in huge paydays.

    Meet me in Cognito, baby
