When you hire a hackershow-style hacktivist, you’re more likely to get paid than the average employee at your company, according to a new study by researchers at Columbia Business School.
The study found that hackers are paid an average of about $15 per hour, compared to $7.50 for the average company employee.
But the difference in hourly wages is much smaller, the researchers say.
Instead, the average hacker earns $12 per hour.
And the average paid hacker is also less likely to take a salary cut than a typical employee, the study found.
The researchers compared hackers’ hourly pay to their average salary.
The average hourly pay for a hacker is $12.50.
For an average employee, it is $22.50, or $6.75 more per hour than a hacker, the analysis found.
“The average pay for hackers is low compared to other workers in the same industry, but it’s actually fairly high compared to the median pay,” the researchers wrote.
“If you are the CEO of a company and you have a high-performing employee, but you have no hackers, the CEO’s hourly pay may be very high.”
Hackers work at a time when more and more companies are embracing the concept of open source, and some have tried to monetize their skills by paying them for using them.
Hacker pay, however, is low, and there’s no incentive for hackers to work for companies that don’t value their skills.
Hackers who are paid a fair wage, however: The study found, would make up about 10% of a hacker’s total earnings.
The research comes as hackers are increasingly using tools to help their companies better compete with competitors.
And as more people take advantage of new technologies and social media, hackers are finding themselves in the spotlight, said Mark Karpeles, an associate professor at Columbia’s Graduate School of Business.
Karpeless said that hackers’ wages may be low, but they could be even lower than that.
Hacker salaries have been rising, Karpels said, and if companies are paying them a fair amount, there’s an incentive for them to hire them.
“It’s just a matter of what you want them to do, and how much they are worth,” he said.
Karras said that he thinks the study highlights that a hacker needs to be highly skilled to be successful.
Hacking and open source are growing in popularity, Karras added.
But he said that hacking and open sources are often misunderstood.
“People think it’s easy to learn to hack,” he added.
“It’s not easy to hack.
That’s the reality of hacking and the reality about open source.
There are people who think it will be easy to get rich, but there are people doing it who can’t get rich at all.”
The research also found that employers don’t have much incentive to pay hackers as much as other employees.
Karpenas said, however.
“There is no incentive to hire hackers who are not as highly skilled as the average person,” he wrote.
Kargas and Karrons said that employers are trying to pay them fairly.
They said that, because of the perception that it’s easier to get hired for skills than for skills alone, companies are offering incentives to attract and retain hackers.
Kari Wurster, a senior partner at the firm, said that there’s nothing inherently wrong with a hacker.
But she said that it would be a good idea to pay people fairly.
“Hackers are a resource, and employers can’t really afford to pay more than what a hacker could produce,” she said.
Wurster said that she has seen companies hire more hackers, but she added that it can be hard to find the right fit.
“I think if you’re hiring someone for a position where they have a reputation for having good code and they have some experience, it can help,” she added.
The company is a part of a startup accelerator program, the HackerWorks Program, that offers mentorship, job placement and technical assistance to hackers.
