Craigslist makes me sick sometimes

I recently saw an ad on Craigslist for a web designer in Midtown at the rate of $10/hr. Are we as web designers so undervalued that this is what people think we are worth? Why would I have gotten a 4 year design degree if I could have simply skipped the school tuition and expenses and just worked at McDonalds instead? I am very curious to the reason why we as web designers are so undervalued in the work force. I’m interested to hear comments on what people think regarding this issue.
