Daniel Marques Posted about 3 years ago Should/Could a maximum wage be introduced; A limit to how high the highest earners can make? But that athlete is not jumping 500 feet higher. And that athletes jumping is not taking risks, for example, that will result in the government having to use tax money to bail them out of trouble. In any case the main argument i was trying to get across is that these extreme rates of pay are at such a high that no amount of work in a day, week, month etc merits the individual getting it. In certain circumstances, such as an innovator who has helped millions of people, I can understand them receiving millions. But so many are just coming out of education, joining a bank, and because they make a few lucky decisions, make the bank money and recieve extravagant bonuses or a very high rate of pay anyway. That extra money made for the bank could go to the state and help the people, fund research etc. Instead that money goes to the top bosses, who proceed to spend the millions on boats, houses and cars. Just doesn't seem right. Shouldn't a line be drawn somewhere?
