2005: Mo' Money? Mo' Money? Mo' Money?

Is 2005 the year you see a pay increase? The Meta Group thinks so.

According to a new report, the research firm says the improving U.S. economy should help to give a boost to salaries for IT professionals, and could be as much as 15% over the next three years.

The report also says this could lead to a familiar Tech sector tactic from the mid-90's -- job-hopping as IT professionals look for better payscales.

Think the odds are good for getting a pay boost next year? Think its about as likely as George Lucas ever doing anything other than Star Wars movies? Take our Quick poll and let us know!
