land surveyor position-just curious

How does a public agency justify paying someone well over $100,000 based on experience and a 12th grade education ? This sounds like a set of criteria
designed to hire a "friend". I saw this quite often overseas,where PE's and LS
department heads sought to bring over buddies from the states who had no experience in the surveying and civil engineering.

Under requirements it says:

"• Possession of a valid California license as a Land Surveyor."

I think it means you need to be an LS....

Never mind. My daughter just explained to me that a "turtoise" is the offspring from a male turtle and a female tortoise, while a "tortle" is produced by a male tortoise and a female turtle. Now I know!
