Do you think athletes, actors and songwriters make too much money?

I can't believe that these people make the money that they do! I have a job and make more than min wage but, get serious folks! These people do not need that much money! Why can't we give a raise to teachers, policemen, firefighters, ect... those people who save peoples lives are more worth that than some football dude that's dumb as rocks but knows how to run and throw a ball?!?!? What do you think??

i think so too, they earn too much!! especially actors and models, all they have to do is act, and pose they dont even arrive if the set is not yet done and they are paid more than the backstage people are!!!

Yes, teachers, policemen, firefighters, soldiers, etc should be given higher pay. But are the actors, etc paid by the government? They make much money but I think they are not paid by the government so they are not a problem to the government but on the contrary help the government in the form of tax payments if they pay the right amount.

They deserve the position and on its basis they earn money,and there is nothing worng with it .they have the capability and talent in them which make them different from the rest of the world.

I agree,... there is nothing wrong with earning money. But, don't you think that someone who fights for our freedoms to be these people, or the teacher that taught them what they know, or the police that protect thier families should earn more than they do? lol ;l
