No, all places do NOT pay the same. Just like any other industry, the pay varies by education, experience, facility, whether or not there is a union. Same as working McDonalds vs. Wendys vs. Burger King the wages can vary by $1 or more for similar work.
Salary is generally driven by market forces. The harder a job is to fill, the more it pays. The "hard to fill" may due to a number of things but there are two factors that make the most difference:
1. Availability of qualified candidates - lots of qualified applicants = lower salary needed to attract them
2. The "unpleasantness" of the job - risky, unsatisfying work setting, poor job satisfaction of incumbents, high turnover, very physically demanding, etc.
