Important people are paid way under
Is anyone worth 95 million dollars? Or let alone any job? Professional Athletes are paid way too much for just playing a sport that everyone can basically play. Also compared to everyone else thats important in the world.
First off, soldiers only get paid by the check, they also risks their lives in order to protect the country that they love. Their families may not see them again, also the families have to take care of their kids why the husband/wife is deployed. Sometimes the families don't have enough money to take care of the kids why the soldiers are deployed.
Furthermore, Firefighters are also very important to the world, they fight off fires in order to save someone in a house or if someone is trapped somewhere where they can't get out. Most of the time firefighters are just volunteers and don't even get paid for doing what they love, which is saving peoples lives. But for the firefighters whos jobs are to save peoples lives and who are not volunteers, their average salary they make is only $38,810.
Lastly, cops/police catch criminals and they also risk their lives and sometimes even their families lives doing what they love to do, which is to get the bad people off the streets.
Hjelm claims that " Entertainment is not needed nearly as much as countless other occupations." And I for one agree with him, cops, firefighters, and soldiers fight and save peoples lives. Also there are way more important people in the world who don't get paid as much, some even make less then one percent of athletes incomes.
