I am just curious, reading on these forums it looks like there is a big difference in pay rates. If it is not against the rules on this forum I would like to do a salary and benefits survey. I would appreciate if you would take the time to do this. Maybe it will help all of us get better contracts

Actually, my salary is my fee. Just as an electrician has a fee I have a fee for my services. Take it or leave it. I'm a Registered Nurse there is a nursing shortage in this country. Of nurses willing to work.
