Pay based on experience??

  1. hi I have a question...most companies have told me regardless of how many yrs experience i have..aslong as i meet the requirements for yrs of experience i get the same pay as any other traveler in my speciality....but a few companies have told me that i will have to settle for less pay because i dont have lots of experience...

    is this fair? i mean i am going to be given the same exact amount of orientation as a traveler with 20 yrs experience so how can they pay me less? I thought the pay was suppose to be equal? any advice anyone??

    I obviously will want to go with an agency that will pay all travelers the same but I want to know if i am wrong in thinking i should get the same pay as another traveler with more experience? i always thought that was how traveling worked.....

    In travel nursing, like ANY job, your pay is definitely based on experience. If you have more experience, generally you will be paid more, because you bring a broader knowledge base to the job. How is this NOT fair??? When I have 20+ years of experience, I had BETTER be making more than I make now!
