I'm in MA and work in an Adult Day Health program and make $21/hr with 2.5 yrs of experience. I could easily make more money but the hours and flexibility are amazing. We close at 4 so can never be mandated and are closed Christmas and Thanksgiving. I have friends working in LTC who make around the same maybe a little more on day shift but work weekends, forced OT, etc. I was working at a residential school for kids making $20 plus differentials. They recently went up on pay rate so now it starts at $26.50 overnights. In this area home care starts around $26/$27. It's not easy finding a job though. The good jobs have tons of applicants.

Disclaimer: I don't work as a nurse anymore.

Almost $40/hr., plus full benes (Inc. 100% employer-paid healthcare w vision, dental, outside gym plan, etc.), retirement, numerous bonuses and a heck of a lot of time off (and no mandation). OT after eight hours and double time on Sunday. I work days, but if I wanted afternoons, there's a $1.85/hr diff, and overnights is a $3.90 diff. Company supplied (and laundered) work clothing, company supplied safety shoes, three private full-size lockers (one for weekly work clothing & shoes, one in shiny pretty locker room, one out on the shop floor), a company gym (with another shiny pretty locker room), showers (private, with mini dressing area attached to each one, in each locker room).

Holidays pay at triple time or double time w/an extra paid day off, your choice. If you work your regular shift and they call asking you to come in early (within 8 hours of having left, you will get what's called 'quick-turn' pay, and it is double time for those extra hours plus your next eight hours. I've worked in two plants that had this. Also, if certain skilled trades have to stay over a certain set of hours due to a plant problem, they get this, too.

Oh, and no more banging my head against the wall..like I did when I was nursing (BTW, my previous factory job paid for my nursing degree, and even continued paying it for two years after I had left that job).

I left nursing (albeit sadly, but still resolutely) for this...I went back to the factory. No regrets, no way, uh uh.
