Good morning William. If someone is overpaid, it is because someone or some company is willing to pay them. I am a believe in a free enterprise system.

I don't mind what someone makes. If fans pay to be entertained by their favorite singer, actor or pro player it doesn't effect me or my life so who cares. What does bother me is how Congressmen are paid for life when they don't even do a good job during their terms.

William - Well I think anyone who doesn't work as hard as they should for the job they are doing would be considered over paid. Some people reach a certain level, or get a contract, and then decide it is time to slack off. But, who am I to judge that.

Definitely some athletes. Having been on Wall St, also some traders - young kids that get high six figure bonuses on top of salaries. Justification is that their jobs could "go away" anytime.

Not the CEO but the corporation itself.

Not the talk show host but the network selling advertising.

Not the athlete, but the NFL.

Those who have reached the pinnacle of their professional are very talented people. It is all the parasites who surround them that are overpaid.

SO many athletes, with the latest example being Johnny Manziel.  Millions of guaranteed dollars, and being late to work, skipping required meetings, etc.  Entitled kids being given FAR too much at too young an age....and yes, they train hard, but when that's your full time job, it's not hard to train.

It actually takes a lot to succeed as an actor. The average annual income of a SAG union actor is 52k. You are not guaranteed longevity, even if you are very talented. It is all about the fickle public. So if an actor makes a mint on a movie, I hope they invest some.
