Fast food workers and even doctors are paid close to nothing compared to our entertainers. professional athletes are paid too much and are wasting money that could be used for a better cause. A lot of people are paid poor salaries. McDonald's workers are paid minimum wage. Waitresses work for tips. So do bartenders, like my aunt. Also, there are better causes for the money going to professional athletes. Doctors deserve the money more because they are saving lives. The money could go to saving endangered animals and the earth. Charity is a better way to spend it, too. People who go to college aren't paid nearly as much as 'high schoolers declaring draft every year' who 'forfeit their college eligibility,' says Justin Hjelm in his article "Do Professional Athletes Get Paid Too Much?" If they make a team, they're paid multi-millions. If they don't, 'without a college education, they struggle to find a decent job,' he also says. Finally, athletes have huge salaries. They do work for their money by bringing in viewers, but they are paid millions! Some are paid hundreds of millions, but take the money and run. Professional athletes are clearly paid way too much.
