 I agree with Hazel.  There are so many factors that can affect cutting on
any given could you allow for every problem encountered??

Histology is NOT factory work.   Every block is different.   Some cut
easily, others are nightmares.    I once worked in a lab  (for a VERY
time), that had productivity standards.  (and by the way, I did meet the
standards)  We had to write what time we started cutting and/or
what time we finished and how much work we produced.    I felt like I
in a factory.   It also made you feel like quality didn't count, only
quantity.    I think productivity standards produce low morale.     I
never, God willing, work under those circumstances again.     Just my 2
cents worth.
