So I woke up this morning while getting ready for work, and checked the news. I pulled up this and was incredibly dissapointed with how things are nowadays. Now I'm not entirely salty about the entire situation, but I'll put it into perspective:
I've taught in schools for a while. Nice ones, and very difficult ones. I've taught children with learning disabilities, and behavioural issues, and done my best to do a great job. Naturally, I'm not just in the job for the money, the reward is knowing you're making a difference. So here's my gripe:
This latest footballer makes just shy of £40,000 a day for what he does. I'm sure he's very talented at what he does, I don't doubt that. But how is that fair? In one day, he makes almost double my yearly wages. It took a while for that to sink in. For one days work, even if it's 8-4, he makes over forty thousand pounds. In what world are things like this fair? How can a sports star make, in one day, what most HOUSEHOLDS make in a year. Doctors make between 40-70K a year. The higher tier of Firefighter makes 40k a year. How is this even a thing?
Now I know, this topic has been done to death already, I'm certain. But I'd love to know your peoples thoughts on this. Maybe i'm just coming across as bitter, but I hope we can see beyond that, as it's really not the intention of the thread. Thanks!
