    How much do you make 2016

    Since I moved to Cali back in 2019 I've made between 30 - 36 per hour. While Hawaii is still at 19 - 25 per hour. I've tried SNF, AL/MC, Substance Abuse Treatment Centers, and Private Duty Nursing since I've been in Cali.

    How much do you make?

    I'm in Cali now making $30/hr. My last job in Hawaii I was making $20/hr. I moved to Cali because the pay in Hawaii wasn't matching the cost of living.
