Argumentative Essay Overpaid Athletes

  • Some people don't understand how hard athletes work to br in the majors.

    For example I will talk about major league baseball players. Major league baseball players have to go through a lot just to make it to single a, double a, and triple a. They wake up at 5:30 in the morning get dressed, eat breakfast, and then they still have to go to practice that is about 4 hours long. You may ask how I know all this? Well my cousin is in the single a and told me everything he does once he wakes up. I asked him how hard is it to get to single a , double a, or triple a. He said its not easy you got to go through many training and practices. He almost got to double a but he messed up once and they sent him back to single a. So I believe they get paid a really good amount not to much and not to little. :)

  • They are not

    A lot of stress is put into this such as being pressured to make a movie a blockbuster. You have to give up your privacy and lifestyle for paparazzi and have to be hidden. I also think they're not because we're funding them, so we can't complain about their wages.

  • They earned this job they deserve the job

    People might say they are paid to much but they aren't. They have to start off at the bottom of the list to work their way up to the top of the chart. They are people kids look up to so they can have a dream job some day to be a pro athlete or an actor or actress

  • You give your money up to watch them, it is your fault they are paid that amount

    Without people going to go watch them then they would not be so popular and would not get the sponsorship that they need. Also the amount they get paid is in no way linked to the governments debt and the lack of money the army get. If you blame any one it is the people that spend their precious money to go watch them.

  • Hey need to be paid high

    Professional athletes have a serious age limit to their career, many will have to retire by 35. Very few will still be employed by 40. Actors work is always very uncertain, they can go years without a job. The high payment ensures that these people can continue to offer these services to the public.

  • They're paid what they're worth

    This is a free market, which means that sports team and studios are free to pay whatever they want for whoever they want. If it weighs on the conscience of the actor or athlete, then they are perfectly free not to sign on the dotted line of the contract. Sports and entertainment are big business, and the reason those companies can clear those profits is because of the talent they employ, and I do think that they're worth every cent.

  • This is false

    That is really stupid to say yes, they get overpaid maybe they do maybe they don't but i believe that they don't get over payed because they have devoted their whole life for their job and now that they have got here they shouldn't even get payed well. And just to be clear we are the ones paying them because we are going to their sports games or even watching or renting or buying there movies it is just that there funds and payments are coming from our pockets

  • They keep young teens remain hopeful.

    Children now days and especially teens look up to these people that we are now considering overplayed. They contribute to culture and encourage others to America. And we spend our money to keep them in business so it's our fault they get paid so much. If they really are overpaid, then why are we still watching tv and movies and watching sports?

  • Athletes and Actors do not get paid too much.

    In my opinion I feel as if we are to blame for , reason is because we give the money to these people for their movies, games and etc. They work harder and harder everyday to entertain you. They make money yeah , but they also do things to encourage you that you can strive for more in your life.

    Are Professional Actors and Athletes Overpaid?
    In this essay I will explore a much debated topic in this country pertaining to the undeniable fact that professional actors and athletes overwhelmingly get paid much higher than the average American. As any highly debated topic, there are always arguments and viewpoints from both sides of the spectrum. Like many Americans, for entertainment I thoroughly enjoy watching both film and professional sporting events. Even though, I have always maintained a firm stance that many in these professions are simply overpaid. I believe once you have read my research and analysis on this topic, you as well will agree from a sociological,…show more content…

    Looking back to the era of the “Roaring 20’s” in which America was enjoying a period of sustained economic prosperity, the average American could at a higher level afford to enjoy different forms of entertainment than previously. This ushered in a new era and cultural dynamic which emphasized organized sports, theatre, and film. Since this era, America has seen economic depression, recession and crisis, but has still remained the wealthiest country in the world. Due to this, the entertainment culture that was created roughly 100 years ago still exists today, and the demand for it continues to grow. Each year more and new gaming devices, games, videos, movies, and television shows are released. Likewise the costs of these products and devices continues to go up. The unfortunate side to this is that it has created a more sedentary lifestyle and culture of everyday America, and in turn attributing to issues as obesity amongst both children and adults. Regardless, we have developed and created this culture with the associated increased demand for this form of entertainment, and the industry is nothing more than happy to oblige us in providing it.
    In a study conducted by USA TODAY and Statista of top paid Hollywood actors, it found that Robert Downey Jr. earned over $75 million in a one year timeframe from June 2012-June 2013. Much of his earnings were a result of his roles in both “The Avengers” and “Ironman 3,” with
