  • We should all be paid the same!

    "If we were all paid the same, Everyone would just go for the easiest jobs. " That may be true, But if you think about it, People already go after the easiest jobs because they are the jobs that pay the most already. For example:

    Someone who sits on their butt in the air conditioning all day listening to people's problems (AKA psychiatrists, Etc) make $100K annually, While hard-working floor laborers that work in a sweatbox factory only make around $45k. . . And there are people who work 2-3 jobs just to make a livable income and they will still never see $100k in their life.

    So, Yes, We should all be paid the same amount. Life is unfair, But it doesn't have to be unfair for all things.

  • Opposite is a totalitarian regime in a poor country, that pays everyone almost nothing, as all the money is kept by the elite.

    For example, what would "same amount of money" mean? Let's take a perfect Utopian society for example. Money does not exist there, so technically everyone receives an equal amount of money - nothing. Yet everyone is encouraged to pursue the knowledge in the field that interests him/her, so there is no shortage of workers. The other is slavery people get by with little pay can hardly afford to live most the time and end up dying while trying to get what they need in order to continue living.

The other is ether forced slavery being kept alive just to work or working for little pay trying to scrape by just to survive for a day

  • Less selfishness, more kindness

    Absolutely! This is the 21st generation, where people earn very differently to the person next to them, however, many people live in poverty, while others live in mansions. All jobs, regardless of the profession, difficulty or common-ness, should give the same salaries. All jobs are important to society, so why should one person earn less or more?? All income should be redistributed.

  • People no longer need to earn a living

    We have the technology to take care handsomely for every human on Earth. Therefore I can see no reason why anyone, anywhere should go without.
    Most people do jobs which create no wealth(as defined by the ability to take care of so many human lives for so many forward days). So it would be more economical to pay many people to stay at home,

  • Yes, yes they should

    Throughout history, discrimination in all forms has been a constant battle; whether it's race, gender, religion, beliefs, appearance or anything else that makes one person different from another. One significant discrimination problem the world is battling, takes place in the workplace. Women, men, and many others are being paid differently for doing the same exact job. Unfair right? The realization that man, woman, and others can produce the same results, have the same education, and have the same capacity to accomplish the same overall tasks as men is becoming more popular. Especially as the prevalent thought of women as not as valuable as men is constantly being proven to be incorrect, which is why everyone deserves equal pay. We deserve equal pay because we are all equal, because women and others can do work just as good as men, and because the amount of money lost by them has terrible effects.

  • Its only fair

    Ppl she get the same amount of money its onli fair not un equel lets solve everyone low ratw of money not rich people be rick we all should be whetey no matter what we all should have a good job so we can pay all are bills for peace

  • No people should be paid differently

    People should be paid differently, because if everyone was paid the same, people would choose the easiest jobs and all the hard working jobs, no one will do and that will affect our economy immensely. Furthermore, people work hard for what they deserve, so its only fair that they get paid accordingly.

  • No, people should be paid for what they produce.

    No, people should not get paid an equal amount of money, because socialism does not work. Under a socialist system, where everyone is paid the same, people will want to do the easiest jobs. There is no reason to work hard to learn everything you need to know to be a doctor, because you will get paid the same waiting tables.

  • It's not fair for the people who work hard!

    People that do jobs that are sensitive, Like a surgeon, Will get paid the same just like the people who do much easier jobs, Like working a t a till at a local supermarket. Just so unfair! People will most likely go for easier jobs if were paid the same.

  • It’s unfair for other people

    It unfair. Imagine a person who studied for 10 year and was in debt cause he/she have to pay off the university fees but the drop out would never be in debt and no matter what, He would never have the same amount of money as the drop out person

  • It eliminates incentive

    Classic example of burger flipper and surgeon. Why would anyone want to invest $200,000 or so on their medical education, and studying 8 years of their life to be a surgeon and make the same as a high school dropout flipping burgers?
    Say both graduate high school at the same time. Assume everyone gets a salary of $25,000 a year. At the end of 8 years the burger flipper has made $200,000 and the surgeon has made zero. In fact, the surgeon is $200,000 in debt. Since every year after that they both make $25,000, the surgeon will never make as much as the burger flipper over their lifetime. And the surgeon has to pay off the education debt and so will likely have less money available to live on than the burger flipper.

  • They should not

    Some people want money that's why they have jobs, but if everyone if paid the same amount of money the people that work hard will be disappointed and the people that didn't work hard would be happy and it would not be far to those who worked hard for very long.

  • Everyones work ethic is different

    Everyone, naturally, have different work ethics. Two people who have the same job should not get paid equally if one pulls more weight than the other. Also, there are jobs that require a higher mental capacity, and there are jobs that require more work. It just doesn't make sense to pay an engineer thats 30 years into his career with a Nobel Peace prize the same as, say , an 18 year old part time babysitter.

  • People put in more effort than others and due to this they are getting paid the same as people who do a easy job

    People work hard everyday and make the money they deserve so in order for some people to not even work hard and then have to get paid the same as people who have to work extremely hard. It is unfair and unjust to the people that work extremely hard, like some of our parents

  • People shouldn't be paid the same amount of money.

    Humans should be paid differing amounts of money cause it would be unjust if they get paid the same. It's unjust for humans who have better abilities and knowledge if every one was paid the same. This is because most humans went through more schooling and or training to get where they are now. So if they made the same amount of money as a high school drop out or a person that has one or more years less education or training it would be unfair. However on the other hand, some say most jobs are still as equally as important even if one doesn't require as high of education or ability while the other does. But if all jobs had the same payment the economic system would crumble cause people wouldn't work hard to succeed in school or jobs. So overall, people shouldn't be paid the same amount of money.
