How much Mick?

How much Mick?

How much Mick?

I from Latchvika and englishing no good. Story is I giving big boss report. He reads and says I am taking the Mick, but I no take Mick! Mick sat in chair I sees him. Maybes big boss thinks I takes Mick like homo boy, but I Latchikan! We have no girly boys like California. Maybes big boss wants Mick kidnap and big ransom get. Question is Mick is only engineer so how much ransom I ask if I am taking the Mick?

RE: How much Mick?

Hmm, you've got me thinking now.  

There was a rather rambling poorly worded post late yesterday over in 'where is engineering going" on an older 'The trouble with outsourcing to China' type thread, ostensibly from someone in China.

I wonder if it was actually an April Fool with the time difference.

Oh well, back to the spaghetti harvest for me.

RE: How much Mick?

Back to the OP, what specialization is Mick, since this will affect his net worth, as will his experience etc.  I suggest taking a look at Salary.com to get an idea, though the values there tend to seem high.

I'd think 2 years salary is a reasonable ransom although this may vary based on the local job market, during the current recession I'd suspect it may be lower.

In local Latchvikas I'd guess an Aerospace Engineer with a few minutes experience would fetch around L$ 1,000,000 for example.  An experienced ME working in exempt maybe L$500,000.  For any near retirement expert in their field Sparkies/Civil/structural guys or ME's working in non exempt industry, I suspect you may have to pay him a few L$ to take them back, I'd expect at least enough to cover any back fees for the Professional Latchikan Engineering Board Society (PLEBS).

I think a similar topic may have come up before so you may want to do a search.

(Minor Grammar point to help you with your otherwise excellent English, I believe the term is 'Girly Men' according to California's Governator, not 'girly boys'.)

Good Luck!
