the army haven't protected us from a legitimate threat in over 50 years, nowadays they fight and kill over petty socio-economic reasons.
imo, lets no pay them at all

much less since his job requires much less training to do. Let's face it, the job market is supply and demand... there are tens of thousands of dudes capable of becoming soldiers, only a handful are smart enough to become bankers...

Alright, I hate to bring logic into this, but does anyone here seriously think the government has the money to pay soldiers the amount Wall St. guys get?
and the Wall St. guys get there pay based on standards and sucessfulness (not a word, but couldn't come up with a real one)

It takes little work to get into the military.

You get out of college, with a healthy physique, and you train for a while, then you are shipped out.

I'm not devaluing the soldiers, but the people who run the banks and stuff have worked their whole life to get to where they are now, and they have built up their carrer to the point where they run or is i higher up in a company that provides services to thousands of people. I'm just saying. Its harder to be a intelligent business man who makes millions than a soldier.

Absolutely have to agree with you.

Again not devaluing a soldiers worth, but unless you are one of the elite, your skills are a dime a dozen, while useful, most people can develop them. To be the CFO of a multi-billion dollar company, you have to be very very good at what you do, and the skills required for that are incredibly rare.

OORAH! I've worked longer shifts on "special projects" and I haven't seen an eighth of the money those W.St.B. panzies make. These guys put their lives on the line for them and make even less. What the heck?

To put it simply, there are a lot more people willing and able to be soldiers than there are with the right about of skills to be a wall street banker.

Supply and demand.

I don't think it's the length of the day you work or the lives you save that make you money. Wallstreet bankers have a specific skillset that allows them to perform their job. Just because they are able to make more money than a soldier doesn't mean you should hate them, they found a lucrative way to use their skills and ideas to make money. Isn't that what we're all doing? I agree that putting your own life on the line deserves respect, but no government can afford to pay soldiers obscene amounts of money, and I don't think we should discriminate against someone because they chose and worked hard to get into a career that they were good at and that they became successful at.

I think that answering the question of who would be useful during an apocalypse would give a very dynamic answer. This is because I would be fucking awesome, and you would be roadkill.

That guy (and others like him) are priceless. That's why we give them our utmost respect and we do whatever we can for them.

Self-worth is assessed in more than just salary.

salary isnt based on working hours alone. The person that told you that probably mentioned it in his reasoning of why they make so much, but it's not the sole reason, so the "therefore..." is all invalid.
