Hi,

I am working as a junior java developer(temp to perm contractor) in Lockheed Martin. I have done my SCJP 1.4 and I have about 6 months experience(3 months J2EE).I have done my BS in Comp Sci.

I want to have an idea of the average salary paid to a junior java developer in my field in the US market. Currently I am being paid $15 an hour which I feel is less and hence my question.

Can't help with your question, but I am interested in this:

What is a "perm(anent) contractor"? Unless I have missed something, the terms are mutually exclusive.

Avg salary (for MS-CS)in east coast should be approx 50k-65k depending on where you live and the univ you graduated from.
$15 per hour sounds more like an interns pay.
Hope that helps,
Amit

Possibly he is referring to "Contract to hire" wherein a firm hires a contractor with a clause that they may hire him/her for a permanent position after a duration provided they are happy with his/her performance.
