It is a sad commentary on our times that the British Museum and
Rijksmuseum offer employment for museum scientist positions at
28,000+ UKP and full conservators at the equivalent of $30,000 to
$35,000.  The US museums do not even bother to give a salary quote!
These figures are just about what they were 3 decades ago! Can
anyone afford to live in London at 28,000 UKP?  One thing European
certification has shown us is that if it did not bring higher
salaries it must have produced more prestige, better office space or
some other perks, no?
