What job position is overvalued and overpaid?

7 months ago

It is important to approach this question with caution, as it can be subjective and controversial to label specific job positions as overvalued and overpaid. What might be considered overvalued or overpaid in one person's perspective may be justified by market demand, skills required, or other factors. However, I can provide an analysis of a job position that has been subject to criticism in terms of being overvalued and overpaid based on certain arguments and public opinions.


One example often cited as overvalued and overpaid is that of professional athletes, particularly in popular sports like football, basketball, or soccer. Critics argue that the high salaries and endorsement deals awarded to athletes are disproportionate to the value they bring to society compared to other professions. They claim that athletes are often paid millions of dollars for playing a game, while essential workers or individuals in professions that contribute more directly to societal well-being, such as teachers, nurses, or firefighters, receive comparatively lower compensation.


While the argument has some merit, it is essential to consider various factors that contribute to athletes' high salaries. Professional sports generate enormous revenue through ticket sales, broadcasting rights, merchandise, and endorsements. The salaries paid to athletes are a reflection of the market demand for their skills and the revenue they generate for their respective sports organizations. Athletes' careers are often short-lived due to physical demands, so their earnings are concentrated within a limited timeframe. Furthermore, the high salaries of athletes can be seen as a reward for the years of dedication, hard work, and sacrifices they make to reach the top of their profession.


It is worth noting that the perception of overvaluation and overpayment can vary depending on cultural and societal norms. In some countries, professional athletes might be seen as national heroes, representing their nations on the global stage, and their high salaries may be deemed justified.


In conclusion, while some argue that professional athletes are overvalued and overpaid, it is essential to consider the market dynamics, revenue generation, and societal perceptions that contribute to their salaries. It is crucial to approach this topic with an understanding that the value and compensation of a job can be subjective and influenced by various factors.

Top levels in government agencies earn more than politicians, so I think that's a reasonable comparison.

Generally, US govt contractor positions requiring high security clearances. Entry level pay isn't that high, but once you're cleared other contractors will offer bigger bucks because you can get cleared with them quickly. Jump from one to another, wait two years, do it again, lather, rinse, repeat.

What about priests or influencers? Are they not overpaid for nothing?

Literally every CEO is overpaid, most executives, lots of finance bros who just fuck around with other people's money. I respect you're thinking small here but there are plenty of jobs that are vastly overpaid.

Politicians, the one in my country just talk about wanting to "improve" this country but just end up taking the money and being silent for the rest of time. If you don't even have to show up to your job then it's not important. They're also pain like a million dollars or some shit for just lying and being quiet. Probably just a personal grudge against them since they took credit for my mom's hard work to make them look like they actually give a fuck about anything else besides money and fame. In short, I just despise politicians and can't believe they get paid so much for doing absolutely nothing.

You're not an influencer if you don't have enough followers to make money. You're just one of billions using social media.
