Traveling doesn't always pay well. It depends on the agency and where you're working. I have yet to make 50/hour, even with the differential, except at one place I came close (and that's in the Bay Area near SF). I can't go out of state for personal reasons, but the jobs I see like that are across the country in Boston or places I could never go. I do get paid well though, except for the current contract, most of the time. Not enough to make up for not having adequate medical insurance though, since the monthly prescriptions are over $150 (for the bare minimum).

I'm about to start a clinic position at $51/hour. I have been licensed since June 2014. However, the cost of living where I am is pretty high as well (NorCal).

That's amazing! Where's that?? I'm in NorCal too

Cost of living is so relevant that until I know what part of the country someone lives in, knowing how much they make doesn't really mean anything.

Example: I live in Illinois, (not Chicago)here a good burger is going to cost about $12.

In California where my cousin lives, a good burger costs $29.

Same burger, same setting, but different part of the country.

Wow! Fancy restaurants! There are good ones for cheaper than that in Napa Valley....tell her to come on over! haha

*** $29! That must be up north someplace. I was in San Diego in August and had the best burger in my life for $5 at a little road side stand just off I 15 a few miles south of Temecula.

Is it Nessy Burger!?

$100K does sound nice, but it's not THAT great someone living in Fairfield County, CT that wants to actually have a nice house in a nice area....or really anywhere in the CT/NY/NJ metro area. It's ridiculous around here. Some of the highest taxes in the country too.
