I just thought of this the other day when my cuz was watching sports(basketball) and I questioned him as to why he watches it. But nevermind that.

Who do you think is getting money which obviously they dont deserve? And who's not getting paid enough?

Professional sports players and actors are def. paid alot more than they deserve.

I think teachers and nurses are underpaid. Not to mention some of them are even getting lay offs! And pro basketball players are getting $10 million a year!!!

Where is the justice in that?

P.S. Thanks for answering

I agree with you.

Professional players are getting  paid to much!
Whereas teachers get paid around maybe 50 thousand a year...these teachers have a hand in educating the kids & they practically raise them!
They should definitely get paid more, especially for all the work they do!

High School teachers take on so much & are available to give help to students after school without getting paid (out of generosity). One of my teachers stays till 8 at night sometimes helping kids/grading and all that.


I can say for sure that i would have gone for being a teacher if the pay was better...i thought about it long and hard and decided that for all the work teachers put into teaching & other non-paid activities, it isnt worth it.

You know sports is popular and it rakes in revenue...so are actors...  So its justified.. I think the most overrated profession is  IT/software and finance analyst.. both cause economic ruin  through either crappy substandard software or guesswork with market analysys and that too with  lot of confidence......yet command undeservedly high  pay and benefits.. Underpaid is fire-fighters and cops... who not only risk their lives to save others.. might lose it even...

If a person is outstanding in something he is bound to make his mark and earn big bucks, provided he is in the right country.
It is a matter of demand and supply.
 
When we talk ARTS, there is no price limit.
 
Take some paintings by Picasso, which I think  a child can do better, it costs and arm and a leg.

But a price of say  36 million bucks for it is way out.
 
Often it is the name and the branding too.
