Suggested Daily Topic

The daily topic for today is:

Is it fair that film stars or football players earn millions? While an average employeed person only earns a small fraction of that?

What do you think is it fair or not?

In case you don't know who I am here is my intro post from way back:

I think iTS fair, it is a free market after all and they have certain qualities which not everyone have.

Sure it's fair, not many people can be one of the top 50 or so in the world at a certain skill, most people could do most jobs out there if they had to do it to survive. Rare skills/talents deserve high pay if it's in an industry that provides value.

It might not seem fair but then again, they are paid what they are worth to the people paying them. They are paid for the values they give to their companies or organisations.

The average union actor only makes about $50k per year! I'm not sure about the average income for football players. But we often look up on top player in their field than comparing with the norm.

To earn a lot of money in football you have to spend a lot of time training, surpassing yourself and trying to be the best, this could translate to the time you could spend a common person studying to become an architect. as there are also average architects who live on a salary or with a basic salary for their profession there are also average soccer players who play in lower level leagues who do not earn the same amount as a Real Madrid player could win. Just as an architect who performs gingantes works will not earn the same amount of money as an architect who performs small jobs besides it would not be fair that football as a product that generates so much money will stop him from this as a reward to which he is developing the show

thanks to @bunnypuncher for this contest

Good job and nice post

As a filmmaker, I can say yes it's fair. Everybody can't be a film star or football player. Also if you do you can't stay for a long time in that position or same earnings.

It is simple demand and supply. The smaller leagues do not have as much demand, same with smaller budget films. But when something exceptional comes along it is quickly transferred to the bigger leagues/films to support the demand.

It's just how economics works, fairness has nothing to do with it, if it did teachers would be millionaires!

Could lady Luck just smile at me today? I think it is my day to win after several failed attempts...heheheh.
To answer the question, life itself is not fair so who are we to complain. Everyone should seek to improve their lot in life instead of wishing for castles of others.

We don’t know the difficulties they have come across to reach that level . Only the talented players or actors getting paid in millions. If an average employee has an unique talent and more innovative then he would have started a company and give millions a job rather than sitting if front of a desk and doing job for one employer. @bunnypuncher.

think its fair, because some work hard to get where they are in life.

I am your fan @bunnypuncher. Even keep on pushing not are born to be like others who earn much.

It's fair. They got paid for what they did.

Yes indeed , it is totally fair.

More than 80%. Of population is employed.
But less than 1% of the population are stars.
To become a star , the level of filtering one has to go through is mind blowing .
It is hell of a difficult to become a star.
If u r one level below star,no one will even know you, and u will not get a single penny,and they then turn on to steemit.... folks....
So it is justice that stars earn millions of dollars

Tanto por exponer sobre este tema, pero como la pregunta es para dar un si o un no (debido a que está mal redactada, o solo está redactada para si o no) mi respuesta es: ¡NO!

It depends, some could say it is fair, some might say it is unfair, it is supply and demand, film stars or football players are basically a component to a product they need to sell, and if that product sells a lot (movies, games---) they get remunerated for that. Basically players and actors are paid according to the potential income they can make to a company.

I think it is fair on the principles of supply and demand, but those with that much money have more responsibility to use their money to help others.

If we see it for merit, there are many other professions that are more important for a society. Now, in a way, it seems fair to me because those same players generate large sums of money to the teams where they play. Great teams would not have that much money without their players.

Dear @bunnypuncher Society is an organization formed by the people who make up that society. We all benefit from living in society, justice, education, health, in a sense we all owe it to this organization because of life in this organization and we pay our debt as taxes. From this point of view, the tax is extremely reasonable, but it must be fair to be reasonable. Equitable income means higher taxes as the level of income increases because people who earn more are those who get more benefits from the organization we build under the name of society.

it is fair as to become a star alot of efforts are required but when they become stars , they are paid just too much

Someday I will win!

Well... the question is... who should get that money if not the actors and football players? Millions of people pay to watch them in action, and love them when they do good and hate them when they do bad, it's a tough life and I'd much rather someone I enjoy watching get the money instead of a faceless corporation.... cos we all know companies are trying their best to not pay them millions.

It's more about economics than fairness, star players or actors are rare and bring in viewers and money...

I think there is a discussion to be had around income inequality in general but encompasses more than highly paid entertainers

I don't support sports by watching so I have a dog in that race. I watch lots of movies and most of the stars of today are way overpaid so I don't feel bad pirating their work

It is not a matter of fair, but of humans putting excessive value on 'entertainment' over other more valuable pursuits, e.g. education (pay for teachers), environment (pay to preserve nature) etc. They just want to be entertained and is willing to pay for it. Why would a teacher be worth less than someone who is paid to 'play' a sport?

maybe it is how it works
fair enough when people really work hard to become stars
not fair when most of stars are recruited by their parents, relatives

Things like these are not about fairness, it's about supply and demand.

Wealth is not redistributed proportionately . The man who made the bread take less than the man who talk about the bread. Of Course is not fair

It is not fair. Because they are just playing while the employees especially the farmers doing their best to earn yet they just get a smaller amount of salary.
(My 9th entry and still not giving up)

It's fair, because, if you don't think it is, you're likely to be in the population of people who have no skill to reap the rewards.

Is it fair that film stars or football players earn millions? While an average employeed person only earns a small fraction of that?

This is a question that could generate lots of argument for or against.

Being fair or not is a decision hinged on personal judgement and not necessarily on the main factors responsible for the enormous differences in their take home packages.

But be that as it may, lets go back to history in the days when this films stars and footballers earned next to nothing. What were they doing then that made them earn so little back then?

I think factors that have made film stars and footballers earn largekly higher are:

  1. principles of demand and supply
  2. Time and value
  3. Multi source of revenue for the film industries and football

It is unfair! :/

Each country has its own stars and footballers, while some of these stars help people who need help, and others don't. I find it Fair for people who make so much money and help, and I don't find it Fair for those who don't.

-Thank You @bunnypuncher

It is very Fair, in Life there are principles to apply to get those amounts of money, therefore the average man should apply them to get a better fraction of those millions. The Football stars and movie stars have worked hard and are needed to be rewarded for their hardwork.😃

it's fair . because it's a Fan's choice, they deserve it! Of course they aren't paid too much. It's the fan's choice of actually paying them; fans money goes to the football players and film stars through matches and donations. If anyone's got a problem with it then they should go to the public. The world isn't fair, but life's not fair. They deserve all the money they get through fan's admiration and winning tournaments especially for the film stars because it's not easy to face the camera and be shown on television , it's not easy to be judge all the time.

well it is like steemit
some people post shit and earn massive while others write their hearts out and get shit in back

Este men :v

  1. An average employee perform for one person or for a few persons. Film stars and football players perform for million of peoples.
  2. An average employee works from 9 to 5. Film stars and football players most of the time work tirelessly.
  3. An average employee can loosen his efforts to make his performance better. Film stars and football players have to make their every effort countable.

So, yes, they deserve to earn millions.

I get what you mean, but consider this. Football season is just over hete in Europe, but players already have World Cup 2018 and some pre-qualifiers for Uefa Champions league. This give them no free time. Knowing this, i don't know if i would trade their millions for my free time with my family and friends. But do they earn too much? Probably yes

Movie stars and footballers get paid for their work, but these people absolutely have to pay their taxes. Everyone in this world can make big bucks, but you have to prove your talent. For example, Wesley Sneijder makes millions for exposing his talent. :)

Thanks @bunnypuncher

Not all the film stars and football players are being paid in millions. We don’t know the difficulties they have come across to reach that level . Only the talented players or actors getting paid in millions. If an average employee has an unique talent and more innovative then he would have started a company and give millions a job rather than sitting if front of a desk and doing job for one employer.

I will try it again

Some people eat too much and others eat fairly. Same happens with the sleep. Similarly, different earning opportunities are exist in this world. Its up to the inhabitants to explore and adapt them.

Sad but true. If you want to have money for living and pay the bills find a job. If you want to become a rich you have to think of something else.

Its the free market baby and actually, they are paid that much, because after signing a contract most of them not only are paid for playing but also to become an advertisement asset, they are not only put on the field of the game but also on shirts, logos, they have to do commercials, go to places and stuff, you get where i'm going.

Society values some skills and talents higher than others.

This is complicated tropic.

all is fair, fair is all. there is no such thing as fair.

The answee is not based on fair or unfair as people are paid on how much they can generate. So on the basis of fair and unfair i will go with the former.

It is Fair, my reasons are, actually their work aspect are a huge attraction entirely, the footballers and actors earn more because their work is on a world wide basis I mean every one would love to watch the footballer in a match of see actors in a movie, which makes them of great importance to the people paying them because they also help them earn big.

What's fair about the fact that professional sports people were born with particularly good dna?

Reality is, they only earn as much as they do because the rest of us "give" that money to them by watching and supporting them.

Money is proportional to skills ,football player's and film stars have invested lot of time and sweat to develop these skills.
Moreover a normal employee after a hectic schedule of day look upto them for entertainment .
If they are paid high they are worth it ,market tells us about their worth ,and to sustain in market they put a lot of efforts.Like football players not only have pressure to perform on the field but also they need lot of efforts and workout to stay fit .So i am personally ok with this discrepancy among film stars ,football players and normal employees.

Go again

Some of us need idol worship, and this generates fame and fortune for the idols we worship.
Flock mentality creates the big foot-ballplayers and movie stars.

Is it fair? No.
Is it human nature? Yes

well in the first place they have the choice in what career they will be taking..

It's not only unfair but absolutely outrageous that film stars and football players earn another man's fortune in a week... It's pure wickedness and it down to the society in which we live in... People tend to give more value to the entertainment world whereas the value needs to be placed somewhere else in education where you see a teacher earn peanuts.

I think they are gifted and they make something special not everyone can do it so it's fair but the most unfair things is that the employeed person is teached to success in his study and have a good job and finally to get married and have a nice home oups i forgot sorry a box to live in it with his small family with the fees of banks and central organisations so this is the unfair things that banks and central organisation take the big part of rewards however they do anything for us and finnaly employeed person get a verry small part for his invisted time, hard work, knowledge and health ... So if someone works for something and he is worth his funds so it's 100% fair

I used to be a cleaner for a company that cleaned some NICE houses. One was a retired couple that owns a water empire (yano, bottled water that you buy), another was just some rich business dude.. people do get rewarded for working hard, just sports is more fun for everyone..

HELLO @ bunnypuncher so work is great thank you for doing this type of giveaway ..

can you contact me plz [ instagram romeshakila] i need to talk with you privet
or email mee romesh.ra24@gmail.com send me a email

It actually seems not fair. But people accept it and like to gossip about it. They said OMG! do you know how much he earn!! , they feel amazed.
Its true that some celebrities donate much though But when i am also an average class person, my mind do not agree with it. Just only doing people entertained doesn't worth so much.

I'll just say something simple, while some die of hunger others die of fatness.

It's fair

good initiative @bunnypuncher,
it is totaly not fair because they don't deserve that much.

The smaller leagues do not have as much demand, same with smaller budget films. But when something exceptional comes along it is quickly transferred to the bigger leagues/films to support the demand.

It's just how economics works, fairness has nothing to do with it, if it did teachers would be millionaires!

In my opinion, it actually is fair a part and other part is not fair. Both of them have to work very hard to earn their income, but players or film stars are luckier, they have talents but others don't have it. So their success come easier than average employees. By contrary, famous persons or talented players have to pay tax more than normal employees, the social try to keep balance. I think it is fine.

Yes, it is fair. You can't forget the fact that they are the part of that 1% who have reached where they have reached because they have worked harder than the remaining 99%. Not all footballers/actors make it. Even average footballers exist and even spotboys and average actors working at the set exist. They get paid as much as an average employee does. Because they're the part of the 99% of the football/movie industry. So if you're an employee who thinks that this is unfair, you're just part of the 99%. No one stopped you from working harder. You need to work your ass off in whatever domain you are, be the best at whatever you're doing and be the CEO and show that you're part of the 1%. Then deservedly get paid high. But don't complain about someone working harder than you.

Another try today before going to sleep!

At least football and movie stars bring simple, easily detected joy to many people with their tremendous skills -skills that they've invested huge amounts of time to develop.

There are so many other wealthy people whose wealth has been acquired arbitrarily (through inheritance, through the natural resource lottery. Plus there are a zillion people in industries like finance who are flat-out terrible human beings who add very little value the world and yet earn huge amounts of money.

I don't know about actors but the training football players go through is very intense and not many would be able to do it.
Throw in individual brilliance and it is justified.

Who am I to judge whether this is fair or not? Usually in their early days they weren't earning millions. Now with sponsors, and 24/7 media attention they are earning millions. But actually not jealous at all about this, and the average person will agree with me I think. But nonetheless it's also demand and supply, not many people have the talent like a messi and people love to pay to see that talent shine on the soccer field.

I am a low classemploy. Can not afford house experience s. Players and politicians earn in 1 day morethen my 5 to 10 years income

congratulations!

well i think thats just the irony of life. Not everyone will get the crown and it is the talents of these people that got them where they are so, its not unfair

Fair? Of course not. But it's just the way the world works... Play is more fun, and of course more profitable than work... No wonder everyone wants to play

Everyone works for his money

It would be fair Ofcourse.

life itself is not fair

Although yes they deserve to be paid a lot for their rare level of talent, I think the gap is just too big and that wealth could be distributed a bit more widely. So in my opinion it isn't fair but at the end of the day the free market decides.

Amazing contest!

I totally think that it doesn't fair but you know the money value of things is depends on hype of how many people wants it and willing to pay for it...

after work, the reward. If you are good at something you are well paid. I can't say it's fair or not.. I only can say that some persons have special skills.

it's passioion and purpose!
Film stars and footballers work hard on their skills and talents to get paid while others just do a normal routine Daily.... I think it's fair!!

This isn't so fair but that's where we find the situation of things to be, everyone works hard in his/her profession. I wish some professions as well earn as much as the footballers and artistes do

Its really not fair. But nevertheless, it's all about your chosen field of career.

Hi all. My first time here :)

It's Fair

Everyone tebds to look at thd bling bling but they forgot that these people practically have their lives out in public, people tailing them and also practices and works in very odd hours. To be honest, I think it is fair. Also not all of them are paid that high. Many actors and players re paid the same or even lower. It all depends on how well known they are.

Absolutely true.

The players are star.stars should have extra money.

So i miss the winning name again

The smaller leagues do not have as much demand, same with smaller budget films. But when something exceptional comes along it is quickly transferred to the bigger leagues/films to support the demand.

It's just how economics works, fairness has nothing to do with it, if it did teachers would be millionaires!

It's absolutely fair. It's as fair as you having the SBD to hold the SBD Contest and we hoping to win it. :)

Absolutely fair!

Hope one day i will win too

I think that a firefighter, police and teachers should be the best paid, however it is not so (at least in many parts) the soccer player has years of preparation, a film actor too, a common worker and current will be happy with what you have and more if you know how to manage, it should be noted that many of these people are better prepared academically speaking, not everything in life is money, and what happiness?

You are soo soo cute @bunnypuncher

there are many other professions that are more important for a society. Now, in a way, it seems fair to me because those same players generate large sums of money to the teams where they play. Great teams would not have that much money without their players.

Nice one
