"The next time somebody goes in - those smart people who say there's something wrong with this - they go into their supermarket, ask themselves this simple question, when they can't find the food they want on the shelves, who is more important - them, the geologist, or the person who stacked the shelves?"

Who gets more pay?
The shelf stacker, or
The guy who builds a robot to stack the shelves.
High skill requires high training so earns a higher reward.

No they are not equal.
Equality is based upon what the impact of losing this function in society would have. Obviously losing a person who stacks shelves would have less of an impact than say a doctor. Its also based on how long it takes you to train another person to fill that role.
Shelf stacker does not take long but a doctor does, therefore not all roles are equal.edit on 17-2-2013 by Hopechest because: (no reason given)
