Nowadays, there is a strange phenomena that some famous athletes and entertainers earn millions of dollars every year. For me, i totally oppose to give them so much money as salary per year, which it will be unequal to other occupations.
Firstly, there are so many occupations around the world, such as artist, teacher, accountant, worker. viewed as one of occupations , entertainer or athletes are not much different from the rest of occupations. Both of them are just two kinds of ocupations, why do we give them so much priorities or let them earn big amount so easily? For instance, an entainer will receive about hundreds thousand per show, or a scoccer player will be paid much more money than entainers. Although we admit that we can have a nice show to enjoy or a wonderful match to match, there is no need to give them such big amount. This is what they should do as a entainer or an athlete. This is their jobs. All occupations should have equal standard.
Secondly, unequalization is also not good to the young generation. If most young people know that they can earn more money as a athlete or an entainer, definitely they will go after. As a result, they do not want to do anything other than to be a athlete or an entainer. What`s more, this phenomena has an important impact on yong people about their views towards money. They will think as an entainer he is so easy to get money as much as possible, which is not good for his development in future. They will become money-goers.
Last but not least, athletes and entertainers sometimes show bad examples to their fans. It is known that fans follow whatever their idols do, even some bad habbits. Recently there is a piece of news reported that one famous singer found to be carrying prohibitted drugs in a KTV. Can you imagin what kind of side effect we will face after this issue? Previously, idols are always perfect in most fans` minds, but now they did such things, sometimes even more worse. As a public person, they need to be careful about what they do.
In conclusion, i think some athletes and entertainers do not deserve high salaries because athletes and entertainers are the same as the other jobs and they do whatever they should do, in additon, they sometimes show bad examples in front of the public.
