Got my evaluation at work on Monday.
I'm doing an exceptiona job, according to management. I got the highest possible raise one can get without high level management having to sign something: 5%. That's good... it's the highest raise I've ever gotten.
But there's a down-side as well. In the entire 10 years that I've been there, they've only increased the scale of the payrate for cost-of-living ONCE. Just once! I work PM shift, so I get a differential as well. In the entire 10 years that I've been there, that differential has not budged... it is still $1 an hour more to work PM shift, and $1.80 an hour more to work graveyard.
We are still the lowest paid in the county.
New hires are making almost as much as I am.

If I'm doing so fantabulistic, why am I settling for such low wages?

After the good evaluation, I get written up the next day (yesterday) because I turned in x-rays where a patient was still wearing a bra. That's a no-no. But do you think that management would have realized that there must've been a reason why I didn't repeat the pictures--having the patient remove her bra? No. So I had to go back and explain my reasons.
I rarely turn in bad films. So if that does happen, there is a good reason.
Most of the time, the patient has refused repeats. On several occasions, the patient died in the period that I took the first x-ray then came back to repeat something (once during a trauma, and 2 other times it was just time for some old people to die... so nothing that I could control), and this time was no different. I knew I was going to have a hard time getting the x-rays, they should consider themselves lucky that the lady let me take x-rays... even with her bra on.
