The American Pharmacists Association (API) has been warning that drug prices have soared, and pharmacist wages are so low that many pharmacists are struggling to pay bills.

The API’s annual conference is held in Salt Lake City.

The organization’s executive director, Kristin P. Brown, said in an interview with The Washington Post that she is concerned that pharmacist paychecks are so tight that many of the nation’s most skilled pharmacists cannot afford to pay their bills.

She said she believes the average pharmacist earns between $60,000 and $70,000 a year.

She said she also thinks the industry’s competitiveness is “so low” that the majority of the profession is “just a collection of mediocre workers, all of them struggling to make ends meet.”

Brown is referring to the current shortage of skilled pharmacologists, as well as the cost of prescription drugs, including the cost for insulin, antibiotics, vitamins and other medications.”

We have to start thinking about what are the things that are the big challenges that we have to address to make sure that we are competitive in the future.”

Brown is referring to the current shortage of skilled pharmacologists, as well as the cost of prescription drugs, including the cost for insulin, antibiotics, vitamins and other medications.

She added that pharmacists working in the pharmaceutical and health industries have faced significant job losses in recent years.

The number of positions in those industries has fallen by about 70 percent, with the number of jobs in the retail and food service sectors shrinking by about the same amount.

“I think that in general, the pharmacist workforce is getting weaker and weaker, and that has an effect on the quality of our job,” Brown told the Post.

“And it’s not just the pharmacists, it’s other parts of the workforce as well, and it’s going to affect all of us.”

The shortage of pharmacists also has a negative impact on our communities.

She explained that when people come into the community, they expect the pharmacy profession to be a source of opportunity.

“The fact that people don’t have the ability to get a good job is an issue for everyone, and for everybody,” Brown explained.

“There are going to be people who are going for this career that are going against the flow of society.

We’re not going to let that happen.”

When asked if she believed the profession had the talent and skills to thrive in the modern era, Brown said she thought the profession was better positioned for a future where drugs are affordable and we have better access to drugs.

“But if we don’t continue to focus on this, and we don’st take care of the issues that are important to people, we’ll see our health care system go down the tubes.”

The American Pharmacy Association is not the only organization that has raised concerns about pharmacist wage disparities.

In January, a study from Harvard University found that, overall, the average salary of a pharmacist in the U.S. was just $45,000 in 2020.

That’s lower than the $50,000 average for all workers in the industry.

However, the study also found that the median pharmacist earned more than $150,000, which was nearly triple the median salary for all employees in the United States.

In the meantime, the AMA has been urging pharmacists to keep working.

The association has been meeting with representatives from the National Pharmacy Federation to discuss its recommendations for improving pharmacists’ wages.
