IP4me seems to have a good handle on salaries. I have not met any engineers making more than 120 to 130 without going into management. And these salaries would only apply in a competitive area.
 
I have a BS EE, MS EE, MS CS, MS Management, and a PE license. I am lucky to be pushing 110. I am pretty much stuck here with 3% a year unless some magic occurs.
 
And... iam not sure where the hours an engineer works comes from.  Most engineers I know work 50+ hours a week...but this depends upon what industry they are in.  Commercial/Small Companies expect free overtime.  Bigger Aerospace types don't.

I currently work as a patent engineer at a medium sized firm here in the Silicon Valley.  First year attorneys at my firm make about $160K.  From what I am told they receive about a $10k raise every year until they are up for partnership at the end of their 8th year.  Also, the min billing hours is a bit more than 1800 hrs.  It is 1900 hrs with the option to take 1800 hrs for a reduction in salary.  The firm also offers backpay for any hours over your minimum billing hours.  From what I see at work most attorney are there around 10 hours a day.  They generally bill 8hrs a day with 2 hrs for general office duties/slacking off.

Also, over 100k for a MS is pretty good.  I have quite a few buddies with the same degree from top teir schools making only around $80-90k at fortune 500 companies.  That sounds like a very good offer and would be hard to pass up.
