    I'm a pharmacist and I do not make 6 times what the technicians earn.  I'm proud to see good, skilled co-workers with no degree beyond high school able to earn $3-$5 per hour over minimum wage, full health care benefits, retirement, vacation and sick time even if they're part-time, though nearly all work 40 hrs/wk. It's difficult to find qualified help when someone leaves a position but we've hired several people recently. I also know that a few of the techs work casual at their old jobs because those employers can't find help either. Maybe it's a regional thing? Good luck to you.
