    I dont understand why cleaners, rubbish collectors out on the street are paid an incredibly low wage. I think they should be paid nearly the same amount as a Doctor IMO they are doing a disgusting job that no one else wants to do. Its a hard job, :(  if i was the president of a country i would enforce this rule. Cleaners to earn same wage as doctors and bring victory to this earth.:)

    can you lower pro footballers wages too? £100K a week is too much money for playing a game once a week.

    It's a simple job that requires little to no education. They also don't, you know, possibly save lives.

    Society does run ass-backwards...

    People who save and protect lives (doctors, paramedics, police, nurses etc) are paid significantly less than those who are the modern day version of court-jesters (actors)

    Not only that, why the @#$@ should some bonehead get paid millions for playing a bloody game for a living, while those who slog to help maintain/build/repair universal infrastructure are paid in peanuts?

    IMO people who literally clean up your shit should be paid more than athletes and actors - society can survive without athlete and actors but if the janitors/sewage workers throw their hands up, we'll be neck high in..well.. shit..

    I don't know, getting top level benefits and getting paid 15-22 an hour isn't too bad in comparison to some of the positions I've had in manufactoring, management, or insurance.

    then again, that might just be my town's package...

    I strongly disagree.

    A doctor can save my life. A cleaner can just make my place clean. I hardly think that is deserving of a higher wage.

    The work they do is gross but even a kid could do it, it's so easy. You don't need a brain for these jobs

    Well, in all seriousness, I look at it from Dwight Schrute's POV. Why pay someone a lot of money for something I can do myself? I can clean myself, I can cook my own food. I cannot, in fact, give myself a colonoscopy or heart surgery. I cannot successfully sue McDonald's on my own when I burn myself with hot coffee, and I cannot play professional basketball. There ya go.

    Round here Dustbin men get paid a decent amount. Certainly more than call center or assembly line workers.

    But nowhere near the unholy amount sales and recruitment people make by selling shit to gullible people. Grumble.

    Man, I finally got fooled by one of these threads. I didn't expect beachbabe to be the thread starter.

    As for your "topic", little to no education = low paying job. I have no problem with that what so ever.

    Pfft! What do police officers do to improve my quality of life? ;)

    Agreed. Where I come from, garbagemen make a pretty decent living. They don't like like kings by any means, but they do have a decent standard of living.


    Like others have said, if you want more money, get a better education.
