Re: OT--Med vs Histo techs

I am a licensed Med Tech and just wanted to get my two cents in.  Not all  MT's
feel this way about HT or HLT's.  While it is true that many people do not know
anything about histology, those of us who do truly respect and are in awe of
those who can perform the many different tasks of a histotech.  We do not make
the pay scale so we are not to blame for the disparity in salaries.  Perhaps the
salary difference comes from the same situation that allowed(and in many cases
still does allow) men to make more than women--ignorance from the powers that be
who run the whole kit and kaboodle.

Thanks for letting me get that off my chest.
