Many more than we could imagine.
I suspect for every one that is know there may be at least three hidden in
the workforce.
In Australia like everywhere else we have a shortage.  However, I think
there are many in areas other than the medical, veterinary and research
fields we never seem to come in contact with.  I for one would be glad to
hear from anyone on Histonet, in Australia, who does not work in these areas
but still performs similar tasks.
