    *Staff RN (California)
    *new grad almost two years ago
    *CardioThoracic Surgery ICU/float occasionally to Trauma ICU
    *$37.39/hr = about $70,000/yr (this figure does not include my
    weekend differential of 5% or overtime or holiday pay)

    Per our union contract, an across the board wage increase of 6% is coming in April of this year and I'm personally due for a staff level raise of $3.51/hr in March AND I move up an additional "step" on the pay scale as well (another $1.60/hr).

    So let's see in April I will be making:

    *$43.11/hr = $81,000/yr (not including my 5% w/e diff or
    overtime or holiday pay).

    Also, my benefits are excellent, I get breaks, and I like my co-workers and management. The docs treat me with respect and I only work 3-12 hr shifts/wk.

    Problem is, is that it does eventually top out. So for people who've been working there forever, the only wage increases they get is the contracted across the board increases because there aren't any more staff levels or steps to climb after 20 years.

    I'm not complaining.

    Where does it all go?


    p.s. where I live 75% of the people who live here cannot afford to buy a house and I'm one of those 75%.
