RE: Histology Lab Manager-Veterinary Science


Good luck finding a qualified manager at that salary range.  I start my new
histotechs here in the corn fields of Illinois at the midpoint of your
manager pay scale and my histotechs (not HTLs)top out at $41,600/annually
with no supervisory duties.  Even then I couldn't find a registered HT when
I needed one.  There is a real shortage out there and good techs are
incredibly hard to find.
