Interesting website for peeps in the industry.

From their press release: is a global tool that will help job-seekers see how they rate among other artists with similar skills and experiences in a particular location. Using the special Wages system, users can graphically compare wages and salaries around the world by typing in a city, state or zip code. Registrants can also obtain information about employment based on job title, company, start date and length of time the position will last.

The site just started a few weeks back, so it is still missing some wages. I’m sure with time, it will have lots of information.
