I feel committed to supporting the creation of a positive, sustainable and financially viable career for all professional archaeologists at all points in their career...
With peace and consolation hath dismist, And calm of mind all passion spent...

does that include starting on minimum wage?
If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don't have to worry about answers

A lot better than how it used to be (when income from 'subsistance' was significantly less than from signing-on), and plenty of us survived that and have managed to make a 'career' in archaeology - and until universities start expending considerably more effort in the direction of teaching practical fieldwork disciplines I'm afraid most new graduates unfortunately come under the heading of 'unskilled labour'

- but isn't this replicating another thread?

This goes hand-in-hand with job adverts no longer specifying 6 months to 2 years of commercial experience - where any amount of university-based digging and fieldwork skills, count for absolutely nothing.
