It seems since COVID started we keep seeing articles and reports by news and social media about how little EMT’s and Paramedics get paid.

But we thought that after 9/11 and it didn’t happen then.
Check out this episode, we talk about pay but also how we have seen and participated in the multiple job lifestyle.
