Nurses Whispering Verses

Recommended Posts

No. I started out at 39K almost 5 years ago. 

 

If I was ever offered 41K for a job now? I'd laugh in their face and never talk to them again. 

 

Nurses put up with a lot of shit, are pretty much integral to Hospitals running and should have a salary that represents that. No different than Teachers. Who also get shit pay. Unless they work in the private school system.

I think the people who complain about what other people make are the ones who are jealous of what they couldn't aspire to be. 

Nurses should be paid more. Education and health care should be 2 areas where a government does not cheap out on. 

Aren't you a teacher? 

 

Maybe I should retract what I said.....

 

🤣

Teachers don't get shit pay, at least not in Ontario.

 

https://nationalpost.com/opinion/allan-richarz-ontarios-teachers-are-overpaid

this says the average in Canada is $73 000.. pretty good for 10 months work

edit: nurses deserve more than what they make though

I don't know a full-time nurse that makes that little.  I'd like to see that average for the GTA north to Barrie for full-time.  That said, I do know a number of nurses that earned their degree and high-tailed it to the US simply because supply in places there is (was?) low and could earn close to100K USD.  I know an inordinate number of nurses but anecdotal is never as representative as statistical but statistical averages can skew heavily.

Go to glass door and look at what the RN’s at the hospitals are making. Many average well over $100k

Raider citation means we need to know where the numbers come from. They aren’t accurate, but probably are the composite STARTING salary of all the nursing positions on a full time basis. 

Not what the average nurse makes

I'm going to keep hiding your posts Ute. Find a better way to formulate your posts. You did it once. Follow Armster and Batman's way. 

 

Also, if only people that pay taxes can respond, I can't. I work on reserve so I don't pay taxes. 

You're exempt, 'cause you're not a bugling twatgibbon.

That article is a load of garbage and stems from someone who is absolutely miserable of their career path they chose for themselves. Don't like it? Take a job elsewhere. 

That said, I think teachers are paid accordingly for the work they do. Although very few break 100K, unlike how that opinion piece tried to portray it. Principals and higher ups certainly do, not many teachers.

I'm pretty sure the number is so low due to the prevalence of part time hires to avoid benefits. Family has nurses in it, an ex was a nurse and friends are RNs as my sources.  Though it's for mainly my area and a few northern areas. They have a great wage rate but a ton of places like to have multiple people on 2 shifts a week and for vacation. Full time work is harder to find unless you're in a more northern area in general. 

 

They put up with a lot of shit, figuratively and literally, and deserve what they make and more. They're a special brand of person. They are unfortunately...a lot of fucking shitty ones there for the pay and not for the work.

Average TDSB teacher salary/benefits in Toronto is $102,000-105,000/year. Average salary is over $90,000. http://www.tdsb.on.ca/Portals/0/AboutUs/docs/Financial%20Facts_February%202018_V10.pdf (pages 18-19)

First, go look at the sunshine list and tally up all the teachers who push over 100K (particularly elementary, although I guess I didn't make that clear - secondary does get paid more). 
Second, TDSB and Peel tend to pay the highest salaries of all boards however those are just 2 of the boards in all of entire province. 
Third, https://osstftoronto.ca/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/2014-2019-OSSTF-Collective-Agreement-Final-1.pdf (page 43) shows the grid. Category 4, after 10 years experience will achieve 100K. Many teachers are at A3, you need to undergo some professional development in order to get into A4 (or have your masters degree). 
Fourth, who the fuck are you and how is this your first post?
