I'm trying to find some information on planning technician salaries. Is there any documentation that shows the average pay range for this type of position? I need this information because I am requesting a raise and need some documentation to support my request. The agency I work for has a the range of $17,500 - $22,600 for a planning technician. This is much less then what our secretary gets ($22,500 - $26,500. I am currently on the high end of planning technician range. I have been working there for over four years. I have a degree in geography and I now know Arc Info and Arc view, developed a web page for the agency, lead park board meetings, make presentations, create displays, help the public when the planners are gone. You name it and I do it. I work hard at this job and don't understand why the pay is so low. Can any of you help me?
