Is the amount of money that people get is appropriate?


My opinon is that hard working adults should get paid more. I think this because some adults only work for the health of their children; some parents even strugle beacuse they have too much on their hands. What do you think?

    Some people might think that a job is not hard to do, or that you don't have to work as hard but get paid more.
    I would be sceptical of this because some people think that lawyers just stand in a court room and talk. But in fact they do a lot more, they have to go to university for about five years. They also need to do a lot of research and paper work for each case. so on the one hand they might look like they don't do a lot but on the other hand they do quite a lot of work.
    I understand that you might think this because lots of parents work more than one job just to be able to pay the bills and look after their children. This might seem very unfair because other adults get paid more than enough to live on-like footballers. The premier footballers wage is £46,000 a week. This compares to the average man in the uk of £27,271 a year! Footballers don't always get the life they want, most of them live by very strict rules and diets. They also have to train quite a lot and stay away from home for long periods of time. Some of them get lots of abuse and they can get followed by paparazzi. They don't get to earn this money for very long, most retire before they reach middle age. So actually they earn less in their life than you might think.
    what do you think to this?

      Great scepticism shown and well done for supporting your reasons with references to your research. Do you think there would be a convenient way to make wages more fair? What would the consequences of doing this be?

      I agree with loyal_ meteor and, if hard working adults don't get the money they need their children could starve or not have some of the benefits other children their age have, sometimes i feel that money is a necessity that we all have to bear with and is a pain to all adults.
