Holtmann, A. G.; Idson, Todd L.
Journal of Human Resources, v28 n1 p55-79 Win 1993
According to data from 2,000 registered nurses, (1) those employed in nonprofit nursing homes earned more than private home nurses; (2) quality differences in care may account for wage differences; and (3) an explanation for quality differences may be that nonprofits exist because of market failure to provide high quality care, and therefore they demand higher quality nurses.
