I've said it before and I'll say it again. If the Ada market weren't run by the
DoD and Defense Contractors who insist on paying non-competitive rates, they would
find more than enough Ada programmers. Last time I did paying Ada contract work,
in 1994 / 1995, I made $75 / hr. Since then, I've made over $100 / hr doing C, Java,
perl, csh and whatever else has been required. Heck - if they probably even paid
what they undoubtedly end up paying for C programmers eventually up front for Ada
programmers, they'd probably be able to find plenty as well.
