The money from the merchandise being sold at games is hurting the team in salary wise because they have to do revenue sharing and from merchandise they make around 3.9 million in a 3 month period. An average person from experience and research spends around 120$ at a baseball game and around 200-400$ on tickets and where does this money go? The money is used to go to the team and to the players to be paid and to MLB themselves, MLB should take some money to keep their organization going but now it just got out of hand and the teams don 't have enough to pay their players with a contract. As an example if the Seattle Mariners best pitcher Felix Hernandez is being paid around 24 million and the MLB gives them a certain amount they have to pay the other players too. The food and merchandise that is sold at the games aren 't it, they have team stores.
They are the ones responsible for all the money being made and it is only fair that they get a large amount of it, shouldn’t they? Others may suggest that companies such as Tesco that has total revenue of £65 billion, should also give their employees and generous amount of money, as they are at the centre of their success. The thing with Tesco is that they have over half a million employees and it would be impossible to pay each individual employee generously and also that the employees are easily replaceable, unlike footballers who have irreplaceable talents. For all the revenue that players bring to the club from football kits to winning goals, they deserve to have a good amount in the money. People compare footballers to soldiers saying “why should footballers be paid more than soldiers” but these occupations are so different they shouldn’t be compared.
Soldiers are important to me.There’s one reason i don’t like .They get paid low money but pro athletics.I am going to tell you many reasons why soldiers should get paid more that pro athletics. They put their lives on the line everyday.You have to remember that they have family at home.some soldiers can’t see there loved ones for almost a year but ,yet pros do. you why soldiers should get paid more that pros. Do pros put their life on the line no they don’t.They only play for entertainment.NBA pros get paid over 4.5 millions in a year and soldiers get paid 50,000 a year does not alot for a person who is defending our country. i think pros should switch wages with soldiers.Soldiers should be more important than pro athletes.
Now in the 21st century, multi billion dollar companies such as Adidas and Nike limit third world citizens from becoming self-made as they are used for their astronomically cheap labor. How can someone have the opportunity to be self-made if they are given wages and living conditions that are inhumane? Two of the largest organizations that sell athletic apparel are Nike and Adidas. Thus, to increase and maximize profits both of these companies use child labor and sweatshops to create their products. Overseas manufactures use sweatshops to create their products because of the affordable costs.
Professional athletes over the world are getting paid millions of dollars just to play a sport. While other people with a lower employment like police officers and doctors are risking their lives every single day are only getting paid half of what pro athletes are getting. These Athletes are making a fortune for just playing a sport and school teachers are working seven days a week teaching students and grading their assignments or exams while athletes make millions of dollars for a game, except lets put in consideration that it is somewhat our fault for showing enthusiasm and passion to go and buy tickets to go see the games. Fans are the reason why pro athletes are getting overpaid. The reason why people go and watch the games is because
During the Gilded age billionaires like Carnegie, Vanderbilt, and Rockefeller were earning massive profits off of the backs of cheap, underpaid labor. Working conditions in the late nineteenth century were terrible and the pay was even worse.Workers would work for 12 hour days in harsh dangerous conditions with no job security and no safety standards These employees would earn a bare minimum wage of one dollar a day for six days a week. Outraged workers wanted better conditions and better pay, so they formed unions like the Knights of Labor (KoL) and the American Federation of Labor (AFL). These unions fought for eight hour work days, better conditions, and better pay along with other topics. The Knights of Labor included black and female members unlike the American Federation of Labor.
However German government printed more money to pay off the debt but it caused inflation. The government had 300 million papers and work 24 hours a day to pay a huge amount of debt. Germany wasn’t earning money properly, so it didn’t affect their wealth, which means they were still poor while they are keep making money. So prices of goods and education and services rose quickly. So many people didn’t go to the hospital, because it was too
Once taken, these children are put to work in industries such as agriculture, fishing, cattle herding, street vending and begging. Kenyans are also frequently lured to the Middle East and Europe with the promise of well-paid employment. After their arrival, their passports and identification documents are often confiscated and their wages withheld, leaving them at the mercy of their employers. As determined by the U.S. Department of State, Kenya is currently on the Tier 2 Watch List. Kenya passed a Counter-Trafficking in Persons Act in 2010 but it has been poorly implemented and the Kenyan government has not demonstrated evidence of increased efforts to combat human trafficking.
Many immigrants coming to America in the early 1900s came for a better life. Getting a job at the Triangle Shirtwaist Company was highly desired due to the nice building in which the factory was located (Zwonitzer). Most immigrants, even those as young as fourteen, worked to earn money to support their families in the new country (Zwonitzer). Once the immigrants arrived in America they started working and many realized conditions were not always better than what they had left behind, and no matter how hard they worked, there was never enough money. In his book published in 1904, Dr. Edward T. Devine, General Secretary of the Charity Organization of the city of New York, wrote, “Where rentals and provisions are, perhaps, more expensive than
America is filled with millions of immigrants that came to this country….either legal or illegal. As for those illegal immigrants, how are we going to deport over 12 million illegal immigrants? They are “stealing” millions of jobs from naturally born Americans but we never think about working harder to keep those jobs. Immigrants that move to this country of America, illegal or legal, helps this country’s economy stabilize with all the work they are doing to help build houses, trimming lawns in neighborhoods, plumbing, electricity….all the difficult jobs that help us, but Politicians continue to try and reform immigration instead of working with it. Donald Trump in the election has suggested a wall for the southern border of America as a promise
