Alright folks why are CNA, PCA, and Medical Assistant so under paid in Elk City?? I just dont think its fair that after having college background and not to mention being hard workers they earn a low income.

CNA and PCA do not require any college. CNA does require a very limited number of training hours and a test resulting in a certification. PCA requires nothing.

You said a college background instead of college degree. Does this mean that you went but did not finish?

I do agree that some CNA and PCA positions should be paid more. I have met many that work very hard, treat the clients amazing, and have such respect for the service they provide.

No college education. Not all but a lot of the cna's around this area are paid way more than they are worth. Also, it's pretty much at the bottom of the chain and there isn't much they can do.

Well I do have a degree in Medical Assisting. I have also worked closely with seniors. I have done more than required to provide compashionate care to thoes who need it the most. Skills including grooming, bathing, toilet assistant, dressing, med reminder, ambulation, transfering from bed, wheel chair and much more. Which is why I believe that such skills and background should be paid alot more.

You have to have a heart to work in a field like this. We deserve a better pay!

Maybe so but you still have no education. That is what the pay is based on.

Why don't we meet up somewhere and talk about our differences? Maybe you could enlighten me with your big education and you might see how well your dental plan is.

A lot of people "deserve" to do better, but feeling entitled to better pay does not actually make it true that you deserve it. Did you go to college for your profession? Did you purposely choose this because it was a calling, or did you just end up there because it paid more than other jobs in the area? Do you really give 100% to your job every day you work? Do you really care about the people you work with & care for? What sets you aside from other professions & makes you standout & be more deserving of higher pay than people in other professions?

How about we meet at Wal-Mart parking lot tomorrow between 5-7 pm. Then we will decide a place to go afterwards out of the way so we don't have to worry about police or someone getting in the middle of our business. You post what time, I will be in a bright yellow new camaro.
