    This is kinda funny! Our charge diff went up to $2/hr a few years ago and I find that pitiful. Back 20 years ago when I was charge at a little podunk place in FL, charge was 15% (which worked to be about $2/hr). Charge nurses have way too much responsibility for a buck or two an hour.

    Don't know if the cost of living difference is actually 65% more here in the Islands. Yes owning a home is much more expensive than most places, but fuel, food, transportation costs are probably only 20% more. Just can't imagine moving somewhere and doing the same job for $30/hr less!!!

    The math comes out to around $38k/year before taxes. Without working overtime I net about $1100/paycheck, which comes out to around $28k cash per year. And management wonders why I try to sign up for five shifts a week, and why I get upset when they call me off...
