I know this is an unpopular opinion and everyone wants to be a nurse because they love to help people (well not everyone but a large amount)...I CANT BELIEVE HOW SMALL MY PAY CHECK IS AFTER TAXES/BENEFITS!Its in all caps cause I'm shocked! When I was in my orientation I didn't have any benefits and I was still upset on how much taxes cut my paycheck but at least I still had a good amount left. Now take away benefits/union fees, whatever the heck their taking out and making the same amount I made as a waitress! Doing MORE WORK! My sister works at a call centre makes 21 dollars and only makes a few hundred less than me? What????? How????I just had to let it out cause it's honestly making me take a second look at this career. We work so hard and were under payed!
