    And probably numerous others I can't think of at the moment.

    The best place to work is a)the place that hires you and b)a place that you enjoy if first satisfying part a.

    Do all places pay the same

    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.
