Some People Feel that Certain Workers Like Nurses, Doctors and Teachers Are Undervalued

Some people feel that certain workers like nurses, doctors and teachers are undervalued and should be paid more, especially when other people like film actors or company bosses are paid huge sums of money that are out of proportion to the importance of the work that they do. -How far do you agree? -What criteria should be used to decide how much people are paid? You should use your own ideas, knowledge and experience and support your arguments with examples and relevant evidence.


Different professions are more rewarding than others, and there has always been a pressing debate about fair wages as per their work. Some of the workers like teachers, nurses, doctors are comparatively paid less than the film stars or corporate heads, but they have a much bigger responsibility in terms of humanity than the actors and businessmen. A large number of people agree with this economic distribution system. However, I disagree with them to a large extent.

The criteria of paying workers should be based on the importance of their profession as this will not only feel more rewarding but also encourage people to choose it as their career. Teachers not only impart knowledge but also plays a role in moulding the child’s behaviour, character and future. In the same way, doctors save people’s lives through their knowledge, hard work and selflessness. We cannot imagine a healthy world without them. Therefore, it would be so unfair if they were not given the respect and monetary rewards they deserve.

Celebrities influence their audience to a large extent, and they also work hard to build their career, so I am not asking to belittle their profession or work. With fame comes the responsibility too. People listen to them, follow their actions and also get inspired by their hard work youth follows them as their fashion icon. On the other hand, businessmen also take the huge responsibility of a company and work hard to manage their businesses. But the point is that their actions would not save, nurture or change the life of people to the extent doctors or teachers would. Everyone works for money and then self-recognition. So every individual has the right to it through hard work despite their profession.

In the light of the above discussion, I would like to say that people working directly at the grassroots level who empower, save and play an important role in the lives of individuals should be recognized, monetarily rewarding as the way they deserve it. The system of income distribution needs to be reconsidered.
