Wipin' ass for a living. Is there really one locale above the other?

There's way more to the job than that. I guess I could live off welfare like most people on here but I prefer to earn my own living and it pays more than McDonald's.

But at McDonalds one can make extra fries and spicy McChicken patties and then sit down to relax until the rush hits. As a CNA you have to mop urine off the floor and get shat thrown in your hair by demented seniors. And also fondled by the men.

Obviously the job is not for everyone. The pros out weigh the cons for me but the question was about how the pay scale in the area is not about the job itself. Being a full time student with children of my own every penny counts.

Guess I'm barking up the wrong tree on this forum, by the looks of it no one here cares to work. Everyone is to busy talking bad about other people and complaining about everything wrong with this area. I see a lot of potential for this area and hopefully other do to and can start making it better.

Heritage, Lutheran and Tanglewood Manor are all good places. Home care pays more, but you will get less hours.

Thank you for a real response! I have already emailed my résumé to all of those homes, will-care and the resource center. Hopefully I will get some good news within the next week.

As sad as it is by the time you can get free rent, food stamps, cash, heap, medical and even childcare if your going to school or pretending to look for a job welfare pays better than most jobs.

The welfare comments may be true but i would prefer to have pride knowing i work for my money and help take care of people that need it i would rather have pride then sell my ass,drugs,or collect welfare i am a single mother and my kids are being raised to know you HAVE to work for your money and then you are more grateful for the things you have way to many people are ok with taking the easy way out but the easy way does not give you pride or life insurance or a retirement plan i make about $10 there is a shift differential is not a bad place to work heritage is alright too i wouldn't do wilcare at least not in this area
