    @StefanH OTOH, if making money is more important than working with something interesting, don't become a programmer in the first place. Become a lawyer instead.

    @Grumpy lawyer is a bad choice if you want to make money. Banker, maybe? Or a Dentist.

    I agree with some others. People who know COBOL are on huge money. government departments in Aus use COBOL along with big Banks.
