I see of no reason that doctors and firemen should be payed more than athletes and celebrities. Before I launch into my points however, I would like to first hear Pro's side of the situation.

Firemen, doctors, etc should be paid more than celebrities, athletes because they actually have to work for their money. It is not jsut handed to them.

People, in private industry at least, are usually payed based on the money they bring in. For example, the NFL brings in huge amounts of money. This is why NFL players are payed so much. If doctors were paid a much as athletes, that money would have to come from somewhere. That is either from the taxpayer or the patients. Economically it makes no sense for you to do this. Also, in the case of athletes at least, the money is certainly not just handed to them. They have to be skilled and train for years. Either you would drop the athlete's pay, or up the pay of the doctors, so much that they would have to charge much more for their services. Logically, you can't justify doing this. Please, vote con.

And who decides what they should make?Doctors make pretty good. And most police and firefighters do too.I don't think that police and firefighters do it for the money. It is a calling for most of them.The next time you see a cop, give him some money.

Teachers are not doing a very good job wholesale, are they?

Of course they should. They save lives on a daily basis while professional athletes play a bloody game. As a society we have some very screwed up priorities, paying some jerk who can throw a football or hit a baseball millions while those who put their lives on the line, those who teach our children, those who defend our freedom, get paid often just above poverty level wages.

That is not up to us to say. The main reason athletes and celebrities make more because they effect many more people.In the millions. Break that down to the individual, and they do not make much per person.
