7. "entry-level medical staff people get minimum wage."

Down here in Florida the diploma mills just keep dumping them out with no job prospects. Huge debt from these scamming schools. One cute thing these hospitals are doing is giving people "per diem" or temp jobs. They call when they need you and cancel you if it's slow. Low pay and no bennies. They save a ton of money that way.
Nurses are always in demand but sad to say, it's a burn out job.
I was fortunate to catch the peak and after 40 years bailed when it got crazy. I loved my job and helping sick people but hospitals are just a money making business now. I understand a hospital needs to make money to survive in this climate and patient care suffers. The suits don't care... YMMV just my 2 from the trenches...
