I was just about to state that I make just under $50,000 and stopped to
check. I don't pay much attention to my salary because we are unionized
and, as a faculty specialist in student affairs without a doctorate,
promotion to a higher salary level is quite difficult. I have been at UHM
for 29 years (faculty for 13 years) and my annual salary is $51,264
(that's in the middle somewhere in our salary range). However, that
doesn't go very far in Hawaii where the cost of homes averages around
$300,000 (when the economy is down).

Aloha,
