Why do some people fail to realize that income is based upon the level of knowledge, education, &/or


even talent, complaining that there should be a leveling of income no matter how complex the job is? There are people who complain that CEOs, executives & others who hold high level positions are "overpaid" while cashiers, laborers, & others who hold low level positions are "underpaid", not realizing that pay is dependent upon one's level of expertise, knowledge, &/or education. In essence, people whose jobs require a high level of skill & education are paid more than people whose jobs require a low level of skill & education. People are paid for their intrinsic worth, no more no less.

    Thompson has a BS degree in electrical engineering from Purdue. He started out as robotics, control designer in 1990 and worked his way up to Reg. Mgr, EVP, COO and eventually CEO in 2012. Flipping burgers requires less skills/responsibility.
