" My aunt made $62,000 last year, working 2 days a week"
"I brought home $1500 a month as a teacher"
" I expect to get about a 15,000 dollar pay raise"
"My sister-in-law makes $29/hr"
The above were all things you've said over the past few days. Now it doesn't take an Algebra teacher to figure out that you're misled somewhere.
$1500/month = $18,000/yr or $8.65/hr =(your teacher pay)
$62,000/year = $5,167/month or $29.80/hr(for 40hrs/wk)
However, if it's figured on 2 days per week (assuming 12h/day), then it comes out to $49.68/hr. = (your aunt's pay as a nurse)
Nowwwwwwwww....where did your expectation of a 15k raise come from?? You are throwing numbers around that have absolutely no meaning or backing. No teacher with 5yrs experience is making less than $9/hr and no ASN bedside nurse is making $62k/yr working 2 days/week. Who are you trying to fool, us or yourself??? We're here, can't fool us..if you're trying to fool yourself then you'll just end up joining us whiners on this bb
Another thing that's confusing. I really think you're just stirring the pot..spitting out info from your head. Do you think nursing is devoid of violence or abuse?? lol Do you think metal detectors are installed in ER's and in Main Entrances for the asthetics of the building?? Do you think parent's take their kids school business more serious than they do their kids life? If they're cussing you as a teacher, you just wait 'til you're their kid's nurse. Where do you think the gang-bangers end up when they've been shot? Where do you think the rival gang goes looking to "finish the job"?? Hint: it ain't at the local gameroom.
