I agree with you, however it happens all the time. The person with the associates may have more experience. When I was in Grad school I had had close to 10 years of hospital experience, most of the people in my class were straight out of their bachelors and had never worked a day in their life, yet we were all after the same jobs. Which were going to start us all at the same salaries. However I advanced much quicker,. This is what you must do sometimes. You have to go in and prove your worth. That is why I suggested you make an agreement/compromise with your employer. This is what I have done each time I felt like my credentials were not being taken for what they were worth. Kind of like let me show you what I can do that makes me special.
Good Luck to you.
