I think in comparison to game developers salaries rest of industry is overpaid (relative decrease in salaries in one part of industry tends to influence other parts as well).

The real problems are person that could play on working when on probation, then when they started to be protected by law, theirs working activity could decrease by a factor of 3. Alas the choosen demo method doesn't work on them.
