    I made $9.50/hr as an LVN in 1986. These doctors will continue to pull wages down as long as people accept them, and with the tight job market as it is people apparently will accept it.

    I would only even consider it if you didn't have to drive that far to the job. And then, as stated before, I would consider $19 an hour, perhaps for part time only. You need to be practical about this too. You can't maintain your car on that kind of pay. Don't worry about the doctor, he will most likely find someone willing to work for those low wages.

    This seems so morally wrong, to the point where it shouldn't be legal. Employers who do this are purposefully taking advantage of the economic situation to drive down wages. How is this any different from the price gougers who Jack up food and gas prices during a natural disaster? Looney right wing conservatives who like to go on about how "great" the free market is should remember stuff like this.

    No RN should work for $13 an hour. The doctor should hire an MA or pay what an office RN would expect, not $13 an hour.

    If he wants an ma he can hire one for that wage and do his own injections. It is certainly NOT worth it! You will find another entry level rn position closer to home for more money.

    I can see an MA or LPN making that in a clinic starting out if the cost of living is low. For an RN who lives in Cali and has to drive a long distance, no way. Would it even out with the cost of gas?!?!?
