Dear Carbomb (scary name!) The BLS states the following regarding the average salary of pharmacy technicians: "Median hourly earnings of wage and salary pharmacy technicians in 2002 were $10.70. The middle 50 percent earned between $8.74 and $13.19; the lowest 10 percent earned less than $7.44, and the highest 10 percent earned more than $15.82. Median hourly earnings in the industries employing the largest numbers of pharmacy technicians in 2002 were as follows: General medical and surgical hospitals $12.32 Grocery stores 11.34 Drugs and druggists' sundries merchant wholesalers 10.60 Health and personal care stores 9.70 Department stores 9.69 Certified technicians may earn more. Shift differentials for working evenings or weekends also can increase earnings. Some technicians belong to unions representing hospital or grocery store workers." (SOURCE: BLS, <http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos252.htm>). In other words, $20 an hour ***might*** be what an experienced certified technician, would make at a hospital, working also weekends/nights and special shifts.
