Lead pharmacy technician ($34,900). They help fill your prescriptions under the direction of the pharmacist at a retail chain or non-retail outlet. Yet the interaction with patients is minimal and pharmacies, like other parts of the healthcare industry, are under constant pressure to cut costs.
I've been through my share of technicians over the years and I can tell you that while a bad tech can really make your life miserable as a pharmacist, but a good tech is worth their weight in gold. Certainly a higher wage would attract more of the good technicians, as would NOT REDUCING TECH HOURS, you corporate muckity-mucks.
