    People think there’s job security in this, but there’s really not. I have been called in to replace archaic code with more modern/easier to read code.

    It pays very well.

    And there have been companies that are paying millions to a small firm to rewrite their COBOL software that covers the same feature set but also opens the door to extendability.

    Programming salaries are so inconsistent and these salaries by language become so meaningless.

    My buddy who works in Google makes 600k but can also call himself a Typescript developer. I’m a dept lead but I’ve spent the past few months fixing business critical code, so depending on how the question is asked, id look like a overpriced jQuery/Angular/bash developer.
