MA Salary

Posted

I have tried looking for salary for a MA, but I have seen multiple amounts...Indeed said $48,000. I thought that was too high, another website said $32-$35...that seems more like it.

Anyone happen to know? I live in Georgia, but maybe moving to Indiana or Minnesota.

$32-$35 sounds a lot. I was making $16 an hour in TN. Starting out you can make $8 an hour unless you do a specialty. I started straight out of school at $11 an hour doing pediatrics.
