Make 650K+ for family income. Still go to date at Mc Donald’s , shop at Walmart , JC Penney, use coupons . More importantly dine at a homeless shelter once in a while. Nothing beats that. I contribute $0 to charity. But always do home renovations, cleaning, random parties outside etc... just with the intent of supporting small business owners and workers in my area and hard working people without haggling on price.

Has anyone negotiated pay at a hospital or company that states they have different levels/tiers of fixed pay for so-and-so profession and can’t budge? I’ve worked in other fields prior to healthcare and have a hard time believing every (pick profession like PT) gets paid exactly (pick random number like $72,345). I’m skeptical because it sounds like “we have levels/tiers of fixed pay and can’t budge” is just an excuse to shut down negotiation right away. Can anyone share their experience?
