Last week I had a nice, relaxing, if organized rant on the economy, the work ethic, and compensation. I'd like to maintain that moment by looking at something that may be making your Friday a Frustration Friday, but something I've come to accept and understand.
Yes, some people make a lot of money being dishonest jerks and not producing anything. But many people do get compensated amounts of money others may not like, and at levels that may make others feel that it's unfair. However, as I've noted, your pay rate isn't always tied to your productivity.
Corrupt money-manipulators and serial liars in business aside, some people are getting paid disproportionate to what they produce, and frankly, there's good reason for this.
