RE: histotech/med tech issue

From:"Morken, Tim"

Seems like a non-problem since med techs and histotechs do different jobs
and you will rarely see cross-over. That being the case, why would there be
any need to keep an artificial differential? I assume the med techs are
getting uneasy about those uppity histotechs making too much money!

We are in the processing of looking for another histotech.  We are also in
the process of raising our hourly rate.  The question is,  as many of you
have raised your histotech hourly rates has your lab also raised the med
tech range accordingly to keep the same difference?  What is the percent
difference between your histotechs and med techs?  My manager is concerned
as to what to do with the med tech range as the histotechs move up.  

While we can refer to the latest salary survey in Laboratory Medicine,
things are changing so quickly with the histotech salary issue that we would
appreciate as current  information as possible.  For those of you in the
midwest, if you would also share your actual hourly rate range as well, that
would be helpful.
