That is normal for an entry level professional series, including contract specialist. The degree requirements are also fairly comparable. The salary for the third year is $50,287 before locality adjustments. Promotions beyond that are competitive. I can't speak for MMS, but I know I lost half my contract specialist trainees after the third year.

Now, now ... be fair. The $38K is for a GS-7 position in Louisiana. That's a beginner position. The top of the range in the particular job announcement is about $85K for a GS-11 in Louisiana.

A more interesting question is why the Assistant Secretary for Land and Minerals Management (who is a lawyer) needs separate counsel and cannot rely on the Solicitor's Office.
