The Structure of Supervision and Pay in Hospitals.
Groshen, Erica L.; Krueger, Alan B.
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, v43 n3 spec iss p134S-46S Feb 1990
Data from the 1985 Hospital Industry Wage Survey were used to examine pay in four occupations (radiographers, food service workers, nurses, and physical therapists). If a hospital paid high wages to one occupation, it was likely to do the same for others. Analysis of supervisor-to-staff ratios showed that nurses' wages tended to fall with the extent of supervision. (SK)
