Default Costs and independent ship crews

I'm looking at Costs, on page 696 of T5.09. When compared to everything else, why are independent starship crews paid like they are? It seems to me there is an imbalance there. Wages, Salaries, and Costs of Living seem in line.

I do not buy a Gunner being paid the same as an Entertainer (good) Fame 17+ or a Corporation Captain. A Steward making 3/4ths of what an Entertainer (spectacular) Fame 17+ while a corporation Steward Officer is probably lucky to pull 600 a month? If anything independents would pay less than corporations.

Does anyone have any input on this?
