A few days ago, my husband was talking with a friend who has been out of residency for just under a year now. They were discussing all of the details of life. He told my husband what his paycheck was last month. It was just a bit under the amount my husband brought home last year. (Literally - I pulled out our taxes we filed for 2011 because I could not believe it.)
Doesn't that seem... just... wrong...?
From my vantage point right now, it sure does.
Maybe that explains in a small way why residents are able to survive residency. (shudder) I mean, what a motivator, huh?
