Obama Addresses Hot Healthcare Issue

One of the hottest topics in politics lately has been the issue of contraceptive coverage in health insurance plans provided by employers for their employees. President Barack Obama recently made headlines after changing his stance on what religious-affiliated employers must cover in their health insurance plans - including birth control. Most contraceptives usually require a prescription, which can be filled at a retail pharmacy by a pharmacist.

Stuck in the middle of this controversy are the hard-working pharmacists of the world. If you have ever wondered what your pharmacist gets paid, below is the national average hourly wage for pharmacists who work at a retail pharmacy.
