Hi I can't believe we as security officer's pay so much money to get a license to work then when we have all what we need they pay us so little. The going rate as a armed security should be no lower then 15.00 an hr. We put our lives on the line for what 12.00 an hour when the company gets 25 to 30 an hour. If there's any ompany lookig for a good security officer then pay what we deserve and you will get great work but pay someone 8 to 9 an hr then be lucky they even show up. Sorry but I had to post this. Security is a large private sector and alot of companies are coming to us for protection give us what we deserve. We also have families and bills.
