The ASCP survey has become a tool for management to justify low histotech pay scales.  I have learned this from personal experience.  Even when the survey covers your region, the numbers do NOT jive with the reality of what it takes to actually hire a histotech.  

Since this has been the case for as long as I've been checking this survey, I would strongly suggest that each laboratory base offers hinged on what other labs in the area are offering and don't bring the ASCP survey into play at all.
