A Reddit user asked ‘What job do you think people are overpaid?’ and here are 30 of the responses.
Here are more about jobs.
Any ‘professional player’ of any kind of sport is overpaid. Meanwhile, teachers, who are the absolute base of society, need to have part-time jobs just to be able to pay their electric bills.
Politicians should be very well-paid by the government and absolutely forbidden from any other revenue streams. No donations to the politician, no lobbying, no gifts, no grifts. No speaking fees, no book deals, no consulting gigs. Nothing. For their entire duration in office and for five (maybe 10) years after leaving office. Politicians should be forced to disclose every single gift they receive; even a birthday card from their mom with $5 inside needs to be tracked and monitored.
“Big” time preachers! I’m not saying all preachers, but the ones with mega churches.
Social media “influencers”
Reality TV stars.
The cast of Jersey Shore are making anywhere from $80,000 to $150,000 per episode.
CEOs of charities.
Even CEOs can’t, under pressure, justify their pay. I will never forget how stupid that JP Morgan CEO looked when Congresswoman Katie Porter pulled out her white board then grilled him about his salary vs. a teller at his own bank.
Big name Actors, I’m sorry but I just don’t see why anyone needs to earn 25million+ for two months worth of work. And I’ve worked in both film and theatre and understand all that goes on to make productions, just seems crazy to me. Great work if you can get it.
Paparazzi, you are paid to be a f*cking jerk.
Pharmaceutical reps. Trust me!!
