Premise

At its most basic level, accessibility is a specialized form of QA.

- You would not expect to pay peanuts and find someone qualified to test software PCI, security, or performance.

- It is offensive to offer peanuts to accessibility testers

- It is bordering on the discriminatory to offer peanuts to accessibility testers with disabilities, and blatantly discriminatory if you pay more to testers without disabilities

So, how much should I pay for an accessibility tester?
