I get tired of people mad at people just because theyre rich. Welcome to capitalism-people offer a service, and they get paid for it. How much they get paid for it, depends on how much people like that service, and how hard that person works to provide it. Yes, movie stars, professional athletes, they get rich, because its a service, everyone wants and is willing to pay for, while they take police officers for granted. If firement started charging to put out fires, theyd probably get paid more. Its how a capitalist society works. And, if you want a healthy economy, it has to work that way. You can't regulate how much a person makes from a government perspective-once you take away the rich persons ability to make money, then you take away the will to succeed-the rich people will either move away, or stop trying to be rich, which will actually hurt the economy. Think about it. Yes, that sports athlete gets paid big bucks. But 9 times out of 10 they spend big to. They buy big houses-which pays the realtor. They buy fancy cars, which puts money in the car salesmens pocket. They have to maintain that car and that property-which puts money in other peoples pockets. They hire private security. Which, puts money in those peoples pockets. all this spending, keeps the economy flowing-take that away, and your going to be left with less and less spending, and fewer and fewer jobs. Just look at how many jobs a football stadium, by itself, adds to a local economy. Does it seem fair? no not at all. But, it is an important part of keeping an economy going.
Trying to control this from a government level-by equalizing the pay-just removed the will to succeed, the rich will go elsewhere or stop trying so hard, and will start not working for their money. Which means theyre not paying that realtor for that house, theyre not paying any taxes, or anything else, which means those that dont want to work-will no longer be getting their welfare check, and in the end you will find a totally bankrupt country, with no one willing to work. Its why communism doesn't work. Its why the USSR fell. If you want to change this, instead trying to get the government to regulate the rich, why don't you take that money that you would normally spend on a superbowl ticket, or your cable bill which you use to watch all these professional athletes and actors, and give it to your local police station, teacher, or firefighter. if everyone who believed that "actors get paid to much" were to stop spending money on movies, television, and sports, and give them to their local emergency response crews and education people, you would not only see well funded police stations, firefighters, and teachers who could actually afford to go out to eat-but you would see the people in the useless jobs-doing something different in order to make money.
Tired of the useless jobs? take away the demand for them. You regulate them, and it will come back and bite you. You take away the demand for them, and it will help.
