By now, most people have heard of the $3.2 million settlement that Pfizer reached with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) over its prescription drug marketing practices, but it’s worth noting that this is only a small portion of the company’s financials.
That said, it’s an important first step toward reform that Pfizers will need to take to bring down drug costs in the U, but not everyone is on board with that.
In the meantime, it seems like a good idea to take a look at the compensation for a pharmacy technician in the United States.
It’s not quite as high as the compensation that a pharmacist would receive at a pharmaceutical company, but its certainly a lot lower than what a pharmacy technician is currently making in the industry.
In 2018, the average pharmacy technician was making $10,847 per year, according to a recent survey conducted by the National Retail Federation.
That number dropped to $8,500 in 2019, and it remains below the $10 million threshold of the FTC settlement, which will allow pharmacies to raise their pay significantly.
That’s a good thing, because it means that a pharmacy can hire more pharmacy technicians and make it easier for them to get paid.
The good news is that this compensation is likely to continue to decrease in the coming years, as Pfizer continues to improve its pharmacy tech-savvy workforce.
In 2020, the median pharmacy technician earned $845 per year.
By 2023, that figure will drop to $700 per year and by 2028, it will be closer to $400.
That means that for a pharmaid technician to make the same amount as a pharmacare technician, he or she would need to work just 15.5 hours per week instead of 30 hours per month.
That would leave pharmacy technicians working just over 2,300 hours per year instead of the projected 5,500 hours per decade.
In 2018, more than 2.2 billion Americans were enrolled in Medicare.
If we look at all the people in that cohort who would be eligible for the Medicare supplement, we find that only about 14.3 percent of them were eligible for that benefit.
So, overall, pharmacy technicians earn about half of what they would make working full-time at a typical pharmaceutical company.
The remaining 20.9 percent of pharmacists earn $4,000 less than their pharmaid counterparts, which is just under half of the typical pharmaid wage.
The median pharmaid salary was $34,500, while pharmacy technicians earned $35,100.
While this means that pharmacy technicians are making less money than other jobs, it also means that they’re getting paid far less than they could have.
This is good news for the American pharmacy technician because the pay gap means that many people who can’t afford their pharmacy technician salary are able to get more work, which would lower the cost of medication in the future.
In a few years, pharma will likely have to lower the pay of pharmacy technicians, but the industry is already beginning to move in that direction.
Pharmacies have been required to raise the pay for pharmacy technicians from $7,400 to $10 for 10 years, but that has not stopped them from hiring more.
In 2019, pharmacy technician pay was up to $11,500 and by 2020, that increase was up from $10.00 to $12,500.
In 2023 it was up $3 to $7.50 per hour, and by 2021 it was $10 per hour.
In 2022, pharmacy techs earned $12 per hour and by 2024, they were up $4 to $16.
The total compensation increase for pharmacy tech workers in the 2020s was nearly $4 million.
In 2021, that was the most the industry had ever seen.
Pharmacy technicians in 2023 will make $12.50 an hour, up from just $11.50.
That will mean that pharmacists are able have more flexibility to get work.
For example, some pharmacies have moved away from a full-shift scheduling schedule and instead have just a part-time schedule, so they can pay staff more.
Pharmacists can also use the extra time to help patients pay for prescriptions, since they are often able to help customers make payments on prescriptions, instead of taking the time to fill them out on their own.
It is also important to note that some of the pharma payouts are actually tied to the number of hours a pharma technician works.
For instance, a pharmacy has to pay out $10 in order to have a pharmaceutically trained technician work 50 hours per pay period.
That gives pharmacists more flexibility when it comes to scheduling their own part-timers.
For pharmacists working 50 hours, that means that the average pay will be around $11 per hour if they schedule their own workers at a 30-hour
