Re: [Histonet] salary scales

To all that are curious...I am in the Tampa Bay area in Florida and we are within a stones throw to Quest, Ameripath and LabCorp...we are trying to compete so we can keep the employees we have and to make sure they are paid appropriately.

While I am looking at this from an employer's perspective, I am also one of the employees, so it does benefit me as well.

Rene, I agree with you.  I think salaries across the board for histotechs are 
elow what they should be but Roxanne asked the statement from an employer's 
erspective and not an employee.  She wanted to know if her range was completive 
nd depending on the part of the country, (Yes, it can make a difference in home 
rices and in being where people want to live and work.  The "Sunshine Tax" is a 
reat example), the range she stated would be.  If she were in a lab just down 
he road from me my histotechs would swarm from my lab to apply at her lab.  As 
n employer, you look to protect the bottom line and offer the lowest salary you 
an and still be attractive to potential employees.  It will only change when=20
he lower paying labs can't find help and salaries will rise.  I am watching 
hat happen even now as this country faces a technician shortage.  It all boils 
own to supply and demand.

Attached 2 articles I wrote on the salary subject that explain my personal 
osition on this issue. As long as HTs keep accepting misery salaries (always=20
ELOW those of the MTs) we will keep being considered as a "second class 
echnical personnel".
