Bowl for Tech industry professionals.
I often have debates with other people that work in tech. Brand teams are filled with skilled animators, designers, UI designers, 3d designers. How come the salaries are so low? I often say they are only low because they are low, but there is rarely appetite in companies to pay more, even though these are often very highly skilled workers. Thoughts?
