I sense hostility. This attitude is probably why you will be next person
to be fired (or were fired recently).

Fact is, in this industry, you get paid according to your skills. If your
skills justify 150$/hr, you will have no problem finding someone who will
pay you that. If on other hand, you are a PC reboot monkey, you will have
problem finding even 30k$/year job.
