RE: [Histonet] Salary Scales

From:"Patsy Ruegg"

In Colorado it depends on if you are permanently employed or working per
diem, The daily people who cover and get no benefits make at least $25 per
hour, but those employed with benefits go from $15 up an hour.

I guess it does really depend on the area.  In San Francisco it is high
twenties to mid thirties.  One hour north of San Francisco it can be as low
as $7-10.00 an hour less.  Big jump for 70 miles.

$26.20 / hour is "decent"?  For the Milwaukee area, that is a phenominal
payrate.  What regions see this as "run of the mill"?  

I wish I could offer techs this pay.  It would certainly solve all of our
staffing issues in one fell swoop.

I also wonder where payscales like this are when the Histology pay scales
are being compiled for publication.  You look at our printed ranges and you
cannot help but think that they are more useful to those who want to keep
histo-pay low.

Call me a coward but I don't feel comfortable quoting our average histotech
pay.  I'll just say that it is SIGNIFICANTLY below $26.20.

Which is equivalent to $26.20 / hour (2080 hours / year) and could be
considered as "decent".
