The original video was captioned: "When you make $29.50 just to draw smiley faces on receipts."

She faced comments such as: "I'm out here saving lives and you're putting smiley faces on paper AND we have the same pay...

"Make it make sense."

However, a different TikToker (@lilyleia) has come her defence following lots of comments from those in the 'healthcare field'.

"What's crazy to me is that this happens so often when people in certain fields - they think they should be making way more than people working in like easier jobs, like retail or food service or whatever.

"They always b***h about how those people should be making less."

She argued: "If you think that it's unfair that you and this person make the same pay, maybe you should be upset with your employer, instead of a working class person."

However, many in the comments had their own views.

One wrote: "Being a nurse requires a skill that was achieved by going to school and for someone to make this amount of money by just checking receipts is insane."

"Everyone on here clearly doesn't have an education or student loans and doesn't realise how hard it is to get a health care degree," another argued.

A third wrote: "But the real reason is why YOU upset?

"The people in healthcare went to school for 4+ years. Obviously saving lives, they have a right to complain."

Whilst others were on the TikToker's side.

Someone else simply commented: "Don't hate the player.

"Hate the game."

"DUDE RIGHT like you really think $30 an hour is acceptable for saving lives? Blame YOUR employers not theirs."
