Dear Kathy,

Good luck in getting more salary for your added responsibilities.  Since I'm 
already supervisor, I was told that I was at the top of the pay scale, and 
they wouldn't budge.  The same holds true for two of my techs who also 
gross.  It is just considered another job by my pathologists, just like 
microtoming, coverslipping, etc.  Just like in any business, we're expected 
to do more for less or the same.  So, good luck!  Remind the pathologists 
that you free up a tremendous amount of time for them....
