PA | $20,000 Signing Bonus, $25/Hour—Zero Applicants
Cumberland Goodwill EMS (PA) hang up a help wanted sign, but no one answered.
Assistant Chief Nathan Harig tells ABC 27 they’re seeing a shortage of paramedics and are trying to hire a paramedic for an open position. One problem: not one person applied despite the agency offering a $20,000 signing bonus and $25 per hour pay.
“We’re doing everything we can to try to motivate people to come on in but it’s just not working,” Harig told the station.
