The Nonprofit Quarterly, pp. 61-62, Winter 2002 | Lester M. Salamon.
Compares nonprofit and for-profit wages in industries in which both sectors are significantly engaged. The result is that the real culprit in the apparent wage disparity is industry mix, not nonprofit status. Nonprofit workers actually have higher average wages than for-profit workers in industries in which both are extensively engaged.
