Low-Paying Jobs   


Reading your Vacaville piece ("Vacancies in Vacaville," March) took me back several decades to the Abilene Reporter-News in Abilene, Texas. My beat in those days included the federal court. One day as I was scanning the bulletin board in the federal building I saw a notice seeking a janitor. You can imagine my dismay to discover the starting salary for a person to clean the toilets and sweep the floor in the federal building was higher than my salary for covering trials. It was an early insight into the realities of our profession.
