Surgical Residents' Salaries

Sooo Izzie says early in the episode to Alex, "We barely make 30 grand a year!" which makes absolutely no sense. Even first year residents average $45,000 a year in the U.S., so Izzie and Alex together would have no financial problems. Same goes for the interns...why are they so worried? They're DOCTORS...they will always find jobs... trying to make them easier to relate to in times of recession is good I guess, but not very realistic to me!
