Jennifer, hi to y'all in SA.

Hre in Texas I belive that there is ashortage of trained
histotechnologists. I personally welcome any new training programs that
will circumvent the on the job training for new entrants into the field.  I
strongly believe that the job situation as regards salaries will have to
increase to meet the increased demand. However, let us face it. It will
take a lot of work on all our parts to educate those individuals who do not
understand that most histotechs put a lot of skill and dedication into
their jobs. Those individuals are generally the ones controlling the purse
We tend to go in cycles of feast and famine as far as job aavailabilities
and pay. Think we have passed the famine stage as regards pay. Hope I am
