I was just curious, does anyone know why there is such a big gap in pay for pharmacist between the different states. I looked at the government salary site and I see a major gap in pay between mass and california, but at the same time, the gap was not that big for other health professions such as physicians and dentist. However, I did check salary.com and according to their numbers, the pharmacist in mass. make about the same as in cali. I was curious as to why is there a big gap in pay for our profession and not the other profession.
