Why is it that the people that work the hardest get paid the least & the people that barely works get all the money?

And please dont say because of Education because you'd be surprised at how many people out there with college degrees that's working a minimum wage job because they can't find work. And most of the rich & famous don't have a college education.

  • Most college degrees are not worth the paper they are written on.

  • OMG this is so true... This is so demotivating and it is a shame.. you look at people who work 5 times less than you literary and they are given promotions and a pad on the back you know why? because they are talkers.. they talk them self up to the bosses and they make up story of their false successes while we sit in the corner get paid less than we deserve and so proud of what we did ( secretly coz ofcourse you dont go around the office bragging about it.. )

  • Nepotisim/lineage, better off means more prestigious schools which means better jobs (ironic since all accredited schools should be teaching the same exact thing, 2+2=4 isn't any more true at harvard then a no name college). Nepotisim helps with connections. But really we have a system set up where things are expected to be done in a very specific way with out any deviasion. This prevents any one who thinks/acts diffrently from being very successfull, same goes for any one who is a bit willfull and will argue with those above them if they see something that is wrong or being done inefficently. This drives out a lot of people since you have to have the money to begin with (in general) or the connections. Also we have I noticed, an ego based system that seems to require, pardon the term, a lot of ass kissing. I have noticed this among managers and the like that they all seem to require an ego boost and will dismiss any one that doesn't. So in the end, it doesn't really matter if your hard working or intelligent, what matters is that those above you like you or you have a padded resume that also name drops both important people and important schools.

  • Because the world is more and more turning into a plutocracy and the USA is the spearhead of this development. In America, people are proud on their capitalism but it stopped being normal capitalism decades ago. Nowadays, the democracy is more and more going away and being replaced by a plutocracy, which is Greek for "rule of money". Money is the new king. With money, you can do almost everything. In America, rich people can already today buy justice (and education and health and many other things that should be out for purchase).
    We live in a pseudo-capitalist system where money is worth more than labor. This is why a man who makes money with money (say a hedge fond manager) can easily become a millionaire while a man who makes money with hard labor (say a carpenter) will always struggle to make ends meet.
    As for the US, I don't have a lot of hope. The rule of money is already so strong nowadays that it even controls public opinion. All the large TV stations, radio stations and new papers are owned by very few, incredibly rich people. Money also rules politics. Can you imagine a normal Joe becoming president even if he's got great visions and ideas? Of course not. He's got to have at least a couple of millions to even candidate. And because these large institutions are all owned by rich people and controlled by money, most normal people are also controlled by money. In America, there's practically no TV station left that is broadcasting a truly alternative opinion. Fox news might be a little more extreme in the choices of their words than say, NBC or CNN, but eventually, it's all the same. There's nobody really out there who has a drastically different opinion and gets a real chance to broadcast it. There are also almost no politicians left who fight against this system. Obama might be in favor of gay marriage and Rick Santorum isn't but in the end, the both support the same system. And sadly, most people like this. They have been brainwashed enough to scream "dirty communist!" every time somebody stands up and utters a different opinion. People (especially in America but in other countries as well) have been brainwashed enough to vote and argue AGAINST their own interests. I mean, just look at this naive idea of the American dream. Everyone thinks one day they'll be a millionaire. Well maybe back in 1890. But now, you won't. The only way now to become a millionaire is by having a rich dad who sends you to Harvard and introduces you to the right people.

    • so sad, but so true. I hate this world and most of the people in it, like the people you speak of. God didn't die for this :(

  • Working hard is only half the job, the other half is being imaginative and interesting. Hence why PewDiePie earns millions playing video games.

  • it boils down to what you´re willing to do. are you willing to treat people like objects and are you willing to lie to people about eveything even considering your personality? in that case you will probably able to get a high pay/low work job.

    but most times people who don´t have a degree and earn a lot doing not so much, did work pretty damn hard to get there. envy never sees the sacrivices one hat to bring.
