    Default IT contractors expecting big rate increases

    http://management.silicon.com/career...9165345,00.htm

    More than half of the UK's IT contractors expect a pay rise of at least 10 per cent in 2007, research reveals.

    Of the 58 per cent expecting a no-less-than-double-digit rise in earnings, a third are aiming to gain at least a 15 per cent salary increase in the coming year, according to research from accountancy company JSA.

    Time to squeeze then clients folks. Negotiate hard. Payback for the rate cuts of a few years ago.

    I was aiming for something a little higher, along these lines:

    "Last week 180,000 civil servants, who had their salaries trebled in January, demanded another increase of 400 per cent"

    25% here from 31/1. And I was on a good rate to start with.
