    Wow, those pay scales are really good! Our area pays much lower wages, even the ones without benefits, which are usually higher paying.

    That’s just the Park Service -wages in the private sector around here aren’t as high. Laborers only make $8-10 dollars an hour, carpenter helpers $10-12, etc. You can bet that we filled out an application for Lacy! :)
