Okay, I have heard a lot of people say that urban planners tend not to make a lot of money. Granted of course, most people fresh out of college don't make more than 50K, but everytime I look at at planning.org (at the job postings) the salaries don't seem all that bad. I know it varies for what sector, and what region. However I think that Urban planners should be paid a little more, maybe like 5k, or 10k more than the present average salary for a planner. It is a job that for the most part requires a master's unlike many other professions that pay more and only require a bachelor's (like Advertising, accounting, etc.) So do you all think urban planners are underpaid for what they do and the amount of schooling that is needed?
I say not that badly paid, but I definately think there needs to be an increase in the salaries though.
