In Historically Female Profession, Gals still take backseat to the BoyZ—male RNs make WAY more than Female counterparts

Male registered nurses (RNs) make more than $5,000 per year than their female counterparts across most settings, specialty areas and positions, according to a UCSF-led study, and this earnings gap has not improved over the last three decades.
Wow, thanks to UCSF for the above information.
The analysis will be published as a “Research Letter” in the March 24/31 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.
That means when researchers made the male to female RN comparisons as equal as possible, the XY RNs still made a boatload of bucks more for the SAME work. This seems to actually be a case of unequal pay for equal work! (Unadjusted comparisons, showed a 10K gap that was favorable to male RNs.)
