My city (Seattle) is in the process of raising its minimum wage to $15 an hour, which is about $30,000 for a full-time job. Many iOS indies would do better at minimum wage jobs here than on the App Store.

Ouch. If true, this is cold water on the dreams of many wannabe indie developers. And that’s too bad.

For software developers the dream of a one man dev shop, or at least a small team seems like nirvana. The problem is, nirvana may have a ‘no vacancy’ sign.
