Medial Assistants salary

Salary for MA's are sooo bad, the most you get pay as a MA is 15 UDS/hr, sometime not even benefits, Office Dr's use MA's for everything, take X-Rays, Ekg, Phlebotomy, referrals,pharmacy calls, we do all clerical work, and we get pay with only one salary, doing what could be three positions, Must of the clininc dont wan to hire X-ray or Phlebotomist tech, so they can save money using MA's for everything, you become the balance between dr's and Patients. It's very hard and its not well pay. Think about it and look for other career.
