$300,000/1750hrs = $171.42/hr.
When you factor in that most places supply them with 401k matching, malpractice, health and dental ins for their families, and more vacation than two weeks it's not a bad deal.
Great! thanks! I'll add it to the list. That isn't bad at all. Does shift work get vacation weeks?
