    $27 an hour seems like a pretty fair wage for that position

    Used to be contracted security from Allied that covered the dorms at MIT. I was in management at Allied before I became a cop, and the guards on the MIT contract made more than a lot of the managers on other sites did.
    Normally I get nervous lately when I see campuses bringing in security, but MIT has had dorm security for years so this is nothing new.
