In its annual survey of US professions Gallup found that nurses topped the list of most honest and ethical with 79% of respondents giving them "very high" or "high" ratings. Grade school teachers followed at 73%, pharmacists and military officers at 72%. Near the bottom were auto mechanics (26), nursing homer operators (24), TV reporters (23), newspaper reporters(21) with car salesmen coming in last at 9%, a point below advertisers.
Glad to note that my profession came in much higher than the Monk's. (Gallup just made the full results subscriber only)
