Certain jobs make me say to myself, “However much that person is being paid, it is not enough.”
When I sit in my office on the twenty-third floor and I see the guy outside my window washing it, it’s a no‑brainer that I think he should get a raise.
Coal miners deserve a raise, as do deep-water divers and every law enforcement person in the world, no matter how much money they make. The dangerous jobs are always ones that make me wonder about the risk– reward ratio.
A new group of workers makes me scratch my head about the pay versus job satisfaction equation.
These are the people who dress like a chicken to get us into the restaurant. Or dress as Bullwinkle the moose to get us to visit the time-share office. Or dress as the Statue of Liberty to get us into the car wash.
I suspect it’s the minimum wage for these brave souls, who need to be energetic too. I think they deserve a raise.
