- interesting food for thought.
While one part of me wants to jump on the bandwagon and shout "Let's Do It!", another part says - "Wait a minute. Even under the current
paradigm, I have to do the other lazy bums' work...and I only get paid as if I'm doing my work - while they get paid...for my work...but - if I
don't do their work, too...it won't get done...and then, we'll lose the contract/s - and I won't be getting paid...anything!" (yes -
that 'other part of me is long-winded
If what I just wrote was in any way true or accurate...then you can see why I might be frustrated at the notion of "equal pay". Some of them are
not lazy... They are just not very proficient. Many of them, however - are mooching brown-nosers. They operate under the ladder-climbing philosophy
of "it's who you know" - and those making the big bucks (that the OP targets
) only care or notice, when some belt-tightening is
called for - to keep the margins sufficient to maintain their lofty revenue packages.
In the end, though - you probably know as well as I, that - those upper-crusters, whose salaries & incomes would be adversely affected by such an
enactment...would find ways of keeping (or increasing
) the disparity in place, while inflicting more pain and misery on those that
voted for the proposition.
