The hardest workers in society make the most money.
Those who produce the most money earn the most money.
Those who are educated. Those who take financial risks.
The most productive workers make the most money
Some dude I worked with told me he pulled 12 hour shifts 40-some days in a row. He’s not a rich man.
Working hard does not equate to working smart.
Smart risk takers make the most.
Unfortunately it's not that simple
Combination of hard and/or smart work. Smart being more important. But if you don’t work hard OR smart, you’re gonna be poor
Sometimes, why? Hard work is subjective and a poor factor for determining income.
Totally false. Think of all the unsung, hardworking heroes that are underpaid and undervalued. EMTs, trash collectors, janitorial staff, teachers, and the list goes on. Pay is not a reflection of hard work.
“unsung, hardworking heroes that are underpaid and undervalued.”
Are you for real? These are the people that are celebrated in society as heroes all the time
Ever see a banker be celebrated? A lawyer? A CEO? Some of them are actively vilified despite working incredibly hard. I don’t know what society you’ve been living in
The hardest working man I ever met was a janitor who made about thirteen dollars an hour and could outwork four younger men.
I don’t doubt it. There are hardworking and lazy people across most jobs. Although some jobs you don’t last long if you’re lazy
They’re celebrated with financial compensation and the power and respect that comes with being a lawyer or CEO. Don’t try to tell me that poor CEOs cry themselves to sleep at night because they aren’t being thanked for their hard work.
If we really celebrated the hardest workers, they would be paid more and wouldn’t be looked down on by people.
1) I didn’t say they were not being paid. Being paid is not the same as being celebrated (even if you combine the words)
2) not saying they should be celebrated. I’m saying it’s ludicrous to say the people you mentioned aren’t celebrated. They are the MOST celebrated!! The persecution complex is bizarre. It’s like no one devotes even 5 seconds of brain power to these limp wristed feelgood statements
I don’t know what planet you’re from Coffee, but janitors and trash collectors are definitely not celebrated and are perceived as failures, while doctors, lawyers, and CEOs are celebrated as successful hard-workers who climbed the ranks and made something of themselves. The only low-paying job Hannah mentioned that’s at all celebrated is teachers.
I’m not saying they have janitor parades but if you look at who gets more general societal praise it’s janitors over CEOs. It’s trash collectors over bankers. It’s not even close. Granted I spend a lot of time on Reddit which is infested with SJW circlejerking virtue signaling monkeys, but even in real life this is true
