[Essay] Successful sports professionals can earn a great deal more money than people in other
In my last post I wrote about how to organize an answer for this Task 2 question:. Successful sports professionals can earn a great deal more money than people in other important professions. Some people think this is fully justified while others think it is unfair. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.
Star athletes like LeBron James, Tiger Woods, and Manny Pacquiao receive multi-million dollar contracts which are exponentially more than what other important professionals are paid.
This has led to controversy over whether this is justified and fair. Although I can understand why some people feel this is unfair, I feel professional athletes are justified in receiving this pay. No one can deny that there are many people who provide much more meaningful services that directly help or impact individuals and communities.
People such as teachers, caregivers and healthcare workers affect so many people by making their lives better and comfortable.
On the other hand, salary unfortunately does not always reflect the importance, need or value of a job. Professional athletes are part of the billion-dollar sports and entertainment industry that plays a large part in the economy.

A lot of consumers choose to pay money for pro sports and related products, so the team owners have the money to pay these players huge sums. To put this in perspective, elderly adults who need caregivers do not have a lot of money to pay their caregivers, and so caregivers earn little.
In short, the large sums of money that sports professionals receive is justified because they are earning that money from their employers by doing their jobs of entertaining and raising profits for their employers.
