Entertainers can't be touched by the left. The Progressive messiahs are untouchable. You must attack CEOs who make less in order to make us Communist.

here is other thing WWE is people are fake fighting and they slam each other that is why they get a lot of money for entertainment

Side: PRO-

This has been discussed before and it has been pointed out that your premise is demonstrably false. Most athletes cannot even afford to make a living being full-time athletes. You seem to be attacking the small percentage of athletes who are so famous they are publicly visible to you, and these people constitute the most successful athletes in their respective sports. The most successful professionals of any industry are paid exorbitant amounts of money. There is nothing special about athletes other than the fact they are more visible to the public.

Regarding celebrities generally, then this might well be a stronger point. Being famous is not a skilled profession, yet it brings big earning opportunities. Many famous people are not especially talented and have found their fame purely by chance.

The exact same argument can be made for CEOs and business owners.

Most of these people do not use the money for retirement. If you watch the news, you see that most of these athletes and celebrities use their money for partying and nonsense, along with EXTRAVAGANT houses that are entirely too large for just themselves. The way they spend their money, causes them to participate i negative actions, causing them to also be negative role models for younger people.

Please explain how you believe they are working hard. Are they working harder than someone that has gone to college for 8 years and earned a college degree to work in a profession that is worth much less than these celebrities and athletes that have no education?

How did they "earn" this?? Half of these people do not even have a college degree... I agree that if they are our entertainment, they should get paid, however, their pay does not need to be as extreme as it is right now. We have athletes and celebrities worth millions of dollars, but yet people that go to college, earn degrees, and EARN their positions that make not nearly this amount of money. I believe that athletes and celebrities should have their salaries cut in half, and this money should be used to increase the pay rate of job professions (such as teaching) that REQUIRE people to have a college degree.

I'm against the amount of money that athletes and celebrities get, because most people use there money for unnecessary things. And, celebrities that are young don't know how to spend there money wisely, so they blow through it.

I agree because they do spend it on unnecessary things, when they could spend it on things they do need. Instead of looking dumb, saying ' i don't have any money though' well you should of never spent it on dumb things.

I think professional athletes and celebrities are getting paid too much because they might be spending money on things they probably don't , when money that money could go to charities and donate it to the poor.

I agree with you, they could be using their money on better things, like donating to charities or, schools.

Side: against the amount of money

I agree with this- and because they are spending their money on things they shouldn't be involved with, they are also becoming bad role models for younger age people. You are also correct in saying that it would be better if they were donating this money. However, I think when people are paid such a large amount of money, they become selfish and do not even consider the idea of spending their money wisely, to help other people.

I agree with you, because people that are actually working hard, and actually trying to be a good role model for some kids don't get nearly as much money as professional athletes, or celebrities do. For example, teachers that actually teach students about things they need to know in the future don't get half as much money as professional athletes or celebrities do.

A lot of people say that they work hard for several hours a day and that they deserve all that money. How is singing a song in an air conditioned booth hard work? Especially with all of the technology nowadays, you can make a bad singer sound good by just moving sliders and pushing buttons. Working in a factory lifting heavy packages and equipment is hard work. People who do that hardly get paid any money at all. People also say that celebrities and athletes are good role models.How in any way is he a good role model? Here are a few examples of good role models to look up to: Police Officers, Firefighters, Soldiers. These are people who risk their lives for our country and save lives. People should look up to them the way they look up to some rapper who lives in a multi-million dollar mansion and drives exotic cars.
