Like so much in the American system, it was not devilishly contrived by some master plotters; it developed naturally out of the needs of the situation”( Zinn, 200). Most wars in America are not well planned which is a bigger problem because more men will die. To start, a war, men are needed to fight and the poor have no other option. The rich can pay their way out by the power and money that has always been in their favor. It is a significant problem
The government does not need to increase soldiers pay as much as professional athletes pay because then people will sign up for the money. The people signing up to join the military will not have as much dedication. For example, a few professional athletes who earn a bunch of money seem to just go out there and just play for the money. They do not play as great as they did when they just made less money. If the government raises soldiers pay as much as professional athletes pay, people will
The Outsiders Have you ever wished you could be rich? Or have a bigger house? Do you think that those who are not rich are a menace? Well in the book The Oustiders by S.E Hinton, The socs are more of a menace than the greasers because of the money they have, their parents mindset, and the society’s popular choice. The socs are a menace because of the money they have.
Persuasive Argument National Athletes are/are not Paid Too Much The topic, pro athletes are/are not getting paid too much, is a heated argument between people. Have you ever thought about it? Well, an answer that I’m sure would be agreed with is that national athletes are paid way too much money. Some people might say that they deserve what they get, but there really isn’t any supportive reasons for that. People know that doctors and firefighters save lives, while athletes play a game to make money.
Corporation should have a first amendment right to spend as much money as they want to influence the outcome of an election. However when corporations, donate unlimited amount of money, it is to get something in return. Which leads to corruption because candidates are more likely to be drawn by the money and change their positions so that it aligns with the business, unions and only benefit the rich. That in itself goes against the first amendment because the average american can not have their free speech herd over the millions of dollars donated by
They work harder than the pros because they have more of a motivation to get to the higher profession than someone who is already there. They can use that money to help support their families. The coaches are getting paid but they don’t play a sport or endure in a sport. The NCAA is making a profit out of them. In all honesty, the college athletes are one of the most hardest working athletes that don’t get paid.
Most people believe that celebrities are overpaid. With all my respect to those people, I oppose their opinion. Many reasons such as the talent of these celebrities, the time they spend away from their family, and their hard work make me strongly believe that celebrities deserve the money they get. Celebrities happen to be born with a gift; A handful of talents sprinkled into their souls. Just like it’s acceptable for attorneys to use their clever minds to win cases then gain
This makes them exceed way above an average employee. College athletes who deserve to get paid is simply unfair: “According to those who support the idea of paying student athletes, this is inherently unfair” (Nocera 4). The college athletes are the reason why NCAA is rich with all the money. They do all the work to get the recognition for the brand they stand
This is flawed because in developed countries like the U.S., the government can spend however much monet they want in practicality. Trillions of dollars of debt doesn't stop America from dumping more trillions of dollars into unecessary places like the milatary, specifically in this case fighter jets. "The F-35 project has been one of the most expensive military projects in history, and will cost upwards of $1.45 trillion by the time it’s over" (Wolff-Mann, 7 Amazing Things, Time.com). U.S. military spending dwarfs the budget of the #2 country – China. For every dollar China spends on its military, the U.S. spends $2.77 (www.nationalpriorities.org).
To conclude, Footballers deserve money. They get paid more than doctors and teachers because the clubs that pay their wages are not public corporations and they are 'for-profit' organizations in principal although some do make big losses. A doctor's wages comes out of my small NI contributions but A football player's wages comes out of the deep pockets
I 'm not saying athletes should be paid same as average person but if we lowered their pay and gave some of that money to the people who deserve it. They don 't contribute the the society. ‘’People like teachers deserve more money than athletes because they contribute to our society’’ (Stein Dan). Wouldn 't it be better to spend the excess money on education or in the medical field. It just makes more sense to do that invest our money in helping the community and saving people 's lives than it does for us to invest it in entertainment .
Furthermore, the decision to start paying the athletes not only would create a even playing field that has typically been swayed toward the universities. Stipends are needed to control how much is allocated, but that itself will be the spark that is needed. This is important because the relationship between the NCAA and their athletes are like any other employer its employee; employer should pay the employee what they are worth, not just what they feel is equal. The NCAA has duplicated the structure that held many people down in the 1800’s - slavery. They earn the massive income as the laborers (athlete) settle for pennies.
The college uses that money on pointless things. When instead they could be paying their players who are generally making most of the money. Because people buy tickets to watch the players play not to just give the college money or to come watch the coach. The coaches make millions of dollars and get credited for the success of the players. Which isn 't fair because the
According to Joe Nocera of the New York Times, if college athletes were paid there might be a less likely chance of scandals like the one at Miami University. I agree with the statement that Joe Nocera made because the Miami University scandal was a booster at the university giving athletes money so they could buy stuff during college, it probably would not have completely avoided the subject because the players thought they deserved expensive things because they were bringing in lots of money for the university for their success. Finally, players should get paid for the money they make for their school and the NCAA, but there is also some reasons why they shouldn’t get
Today im going to explain why soldiers should get paid more than athletes.There a lot of reasons why should soldiers get paid more than athletes. I feel that men and women in the military should get way more money than an athlete players because the soldiers are fighting for our lives.They have bills and probably a family to take care of.The soldiers risk their lives everyday to protect our freedom and this country yet many of them are now homeless and need assistance from the government to support themselves. We pay our athletes more money than our own military force and I find this extremely sad. Our military serve and protect and watch friends and family die in front of them yet we still pay athletes for our entertainment more
