    1. Continuing care assistant is my title.
    2. I'm in Saskatchewan Canada.
    3. I make 21.37/hr. I started at 19.87
    4. I get shift diff, and weekend premium. Weekend premium is higher than shift diff but if you work nights on a weekend you get both.
    5. I work 12 hour nights.
    6. Long term care, we have a large mix of abilities in our building.
    7. I've been there for 2 years.
    8. I'm casual but when I'm not in school I work full time hours.
    9. I'm in second semester practical nursing. 11 months until I graduate!
    Oh wow. A Care Assistant with 2 yrs on the job makes $21.37/hr in Saskatchewan, Canada. This has to be an outlier, but again, I think there has to be some factors that elicit such high rates.
