Salaries

Here are the average academic salaries, via Inside Higher Ed. They vary a fair bit by discipline but they strike me overall as low. I guess they would.  When I think of academics, I tend to think of the leaders of the profession, in which case, they are underpaid. But these are the average salaries.

Do I understand correctly that the upgrade from Assistant to Associate Professor corresponds to the award of tenure? If so your system of titles is more logical than ours, where tenure is typically awarded within the rank of Lecturer. Or at least it was in my day.
