So the best or the harder working should just be happy with getting an adequate salary so everyone else can make more money?
Should I work 60+ hours a week for just a little more than employees do and only work 40? Should I be the one taking all the risks and be happy with a modest salary?
Should someone go tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt to earn a degree only to make a salary similar to what their peers with no debt incurred along a professional career path?
How much is the fruits of my labor worth?
