Check out the ASCP wage and vacancy survey:
Also, look through Advance magzine ( to see the histolotech ads - many are giving anywhere from 2K - 5K sign-on bonuses and even moving expenses. That alone shows the desperation many places feel in recruiting.

I have been asked by my lab manager to get as much information as possible on the labor market shortage of histotechs.. He needs this to establish a histotech position as "hard to fill.  With this info, it would give us greater flexibility in our salary scale.
If I could get feedback on this, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your response and have a great day!
