Terry, you make me laugh!  What means "compensated"?  Must be a government term....

Several of our techs, including myself, gross the small specimens.  There is  
no compensation.  The job description just changed.  The pathologists  
recognize and appreciate the extra feature with words only.  And we do not  
get flowers during Lab Week, vs. the medical secretaries that discretly get  
flowers and candy from the pathologists the following week for National  
Secretary's Day.  Their reason:  "they get paid less, and do so much  
work..."   :-)
