Some of us are in the position of making the only income in the household. Some of us are single without dependents. Some of us are divorced, separated, or widowed with one or more dependents to support. Some have a good child support to help out and yet others do not.
Some of us are the fortunate enough to have another spouse or live in which helps with the bills. In these cases some are the primary wage earners while some are not.
The big myth or possible reality is that the majority of nurses are women who are secondary income earners who work on the side to help pay for the little extras in life and there for do not have the need to earn as much as another profession.
Lets actually see what the reality truly is.

Thanks for correcting me WT....I guess.
My point was that we're not the only ones working in a "suppressed" occupation. That was all.
A gunshot or knifeblade to the right place is fatal faster, I would think, than contracting some of the diseases that we are exposed to. BTW...P.O.'s are also exposed to the same diseases we are. Think of all the blood involved in a major MVA or the occasional domestic dispute.
