Are people who work for charities more charitable?

Toopoorweb

A third of people who work for charities don't give to good causes apparently. The research from VoucherCodesPro.co.uk suggests that the number of charity workers who give to good causes is pretty much the same as amongst the general public. Is this a surprise? Are charity workers too poor, too mean, too over-worked or too normal to give more than anyone else? What do you think?

Isn't this like asking are doctors more healthy? or are lawyers more moral? Importantly charity workers, including fundraisers, have comparable or less capacity to give than wider public so it's surely no surprise their generosity is similar. Having taken a career that pays less - should we expect them to give more too?
