Deciding the suitable salary for people's work is difficult; many workers feel that their wadge is not enough for their work. Sometimes city bus driver or airline company employees have a strike to show that their work is valuable and necessary for human society. On the other hand, part of famous athletes and entertainers earn millions of dollars as their salary. Do they really have the value of such a huge money? I believe the answer is "Yes".
High-income people are needed by many people. They can make many people happy by their performance. In Japan, Akashiya-Sanma is the most popular comedian. 9 of 10 Japanese citizens know about him. Of course, there are many comedians in Japan. However, Akashiya-Sanma makes every people, regardless of their gender or age, laugh every time he talks with someone. That is why many people pay for his talk shows. As almost every people like him, companies ask Akashiya-Sanma to come to their event in order to gather people and introduce their product. Thus, many people need him, he can earn the tremendous amount of money.
Furthermore, high-income people have unique skills, which can not be imitated by others. Now Shohei Otani, Japanese baseball player, is goin to challange to Mager League Baseball. Many critics say his salary would be over 10 million dollars in his first year. The reason of his popularity is that he is not only a top pitcher but also top batter. This is an extremely preferable for team because they can prepare a pitcher and a batter by registering Otani in a roster. Furthermore, most of the player, except Babe Ruth, American legend in 100 years ago, cannot work like this.
On the other hands, most of the low-income workers do simple works such as washing dishes or driving cars. Of course, their works are inevitable for society. However if the company need more money, maybe they can hire new people easily; as many people can do something. That is why, if the low-income workers ask the employee to increase their wadge, they would be cut and the wedge of the work would be stay same as before.
In conclusion, famous athletes and entertainers who earn huge money are unique and they are needed by many people. Because of these reasons, I believe they are worth to be paid millions of dollars.Read more
