    Thank you very much for saying what we are all thinking. It's great when someone with reason (as opposed to someone like me) states the obvious.

    So, to sum it up...if you are really great at what you do, but you have an associates degree, they'll probably give you the $21.50. If you've shown that you're willing to go the extra mile, and have proven it by investing the additional $20k-$40k in you bachelors, then they'll step up to the plate and give you the additional $3.00 per hour.
