So many of you out in the emergiblogosphere have prob seen this dandy of an article from CNN.
It documents “Five Surprising Salaries” from surprisingly high to surprisingly low–well only one remarkably low salary: Paramedics
What they do: Paramedics respond to emergency situations and attempt to provide the necessary medical care, whether it involves transporting participants to a hospital or treating them on the scene.
Surprising salary: $27,070. Seeing as paramedics have high stress jobs that require them to be on call and ready to save lives at a moment’s notice, you might expect their mean annual salary to be higher.
Don’t worry though guys… Court Reporters make double what we do and astronomers–they triple our salaries.
Thanks Digg for depressing me yet again…
