soldier's work is to keep bankers stealing money

I know it's a joke, but we just can't afford to pay soldiers that much. And if Wall street executives didn't make so much money, there would probably be a lot less of them, or they'd be much less qualified, and as much as you edgy teens disagree, we'd be much worse off without them.

Remember kiddos, greedy assholes built the railroads and made the American economy great.

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.

they dont get paid that much cause of the amount of hours they work lol. they get paid that much cause they're good enough at their job which is crucial to their companies to be more or less irreplaceable. Soldiers arent irreplaceable so they get paid less, too little imo but thats not the point, even though they're risking their life and work around the clock.

He is worth nothing according to Obama. Obama cut his benefits and let him not get paid for 2 whole weeks.

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.

It isn't because they work 16-hour days, it's because they make other people millions, if not billions, of dollars every year.

When I was in the Army we spent most of those hours sitting still in a vehicle or in camp. Even if we were on hours, we only spent a few ones in actual battle.

Are you guys ******* serious.

Welcome to the real world.
It's never about who actually deserves it. And it's not only in America but in the whole world.

Not every businessman is successful but your average businessman is a lot smarter than an army brute.

They know what they are in for. They know how much it pays. STFU

sad how the fat lazy white collar guys get all the money and the men who truly work for a living get paid chicken feed
