Shai is being way too polite. Our local McDonald's is starting people at $15 an hour. Any institution should be embarrassed to advertise such a job at that starting salary.

So I'm guessing at $15 per hour, the TTU is not really interested in knowledge, experience, know-how, and especially care for the assets. I have voiced this not once, even for positions that did not involve A/V. There was an ad not long ago for roughly the same pay grade with a minimum requirement of MA. Good luck to all applicants.
