This thread is amazing me, not so much in how little or how much people get paid, but rather how loosely the titles are used.

Intern/house engineer/2nd engineer/engineer-in-training/freelance engineer/etc.

What about the people that actively choose to be career 2nd engineers, and will continue to "intern" at every studio they work at as a house engineer until they learn the workflow of that environment?

Not all interns are newbies, and not all engineers are seasoned veterans. It is making union shops more attractive though. Then you'd not have to worry about if you were getting paid, but rather where you could work.
