Dawn makes a good suggestion here.  Documentation of this sort will help you with
your request to management.  I had a lab assistant for three years doing the same
general duties you describe. She had a nursing assistant's license and college
credit, so that helped get a good starting salary for her.  She started at 9.50
an hour and received very good annual raises before she had to move to Texas last
