    You are soo WRONG! where did you get all this? Jean is a great nurse who worked a lot of overtime that was available at CMC when the state hiring freeze was in effect. We could all make as much as her if we worked overtime everyday too. By the way, CDCR salaries are determined by barganing units (union contracts) not location in the state.
    We have a "supermax" prison near where I live. In my state, retirement for state employees is based on your 3 highest years of salary. There was a guard who worked there and 3 years b/4 he retired, he sold his house, bought a nice camper and parked it in the lot of the prison. Then he worked double shifts, every holidy and weekend (always guards wanting these off) and every overtime shift he could get his hands on. He lived right in the lot so he was available for those who called in sick or who weren't able to make it in due to weather. Needless to say, he made a LOT of money those last 3 years. It can be done. Now, do I feel it is a safe way to work? Especially in that environment? Oh HAYLE no!!!

    Those days of huge overtime are OVER ... That was when there was a huge nursing shortage at CDC .. There is not a shortage now .The nurse worked as a RN and worked an insane amount of hours.A new employee could not do that even if the hours were available.. Due to the fact that overtime is given according to seniority ... Unless you have a lot of years of service there will not be any overtime left for you
