How would they include a job that has a salary range for example "25K to 60K (based on experience)"

This article is awesome! :D

Intermediate – You have more skills than a beginner, but you’re not quite an expert yet.
Senior – You have more skills and experience compared to a person with intermediate skills.
:crylaugh:
Software Development (senior) R42,493 – R54,924
IT Management (senior) R57,361 – R68,281
..and then there are the salaries :rolleyes:

Sheesh, times must be tough when senior software developers earn R600k gross, assuming this is gross. If it was nett, the it would be a bit more reasonable, but it's not.

Also, that management salary is offensive.

Lol @ KZN. Almost like they're disconnected from the internet somehow. Go figure.

IT as an industry does not really pay well considering the hours.

Youre in Australia right? Whats inflation like that side? Lower than 4%?

Q1 of 2018 has been 1.9%. Seems to be between 1.5%-3%. The difference is in SA I could get inflation linked increases each year by just doing the bare minimum. Here I have done tons of overtime and weekend work and all you get is 4%. People have been complaining that salaries here are stagnating for a while, with many not getting a single increase for 3-5 years or getting 1-2% increases. Looks like I'll be doing some salary increasing of my own accord as soon as the house is done.

I think the biggest thing is because SA has a higher inflation you can noticeably see the difference from your increases when you get 10%+. In Aus an inflation linked increase for many will literally mean being able to afford a few more coffees each week.

Nothing to add beyond pointing out that staff writer's japanese flag take on a bar chart is unique AF:
