    $40 an hour IS the union wage scale in California.
    the figure mentioned above would be for a new grad , looking at the scale for my hospiatl it starts at $37 , within a short time , once completed work for first step of clinical ladder you are at $40 . Top of scale for staff nurse $53 for CN1 , 2, 3 approx $3 / step more . The pay scale for hospitals who have more mature contracts is better .
