    Worse are tellers at banks who can't do the simplest math or make change.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Lets be fair...High Stress office jobs can be awful...and to many harder than a construction labor job...I think its relative some High earners dont do much at all and some have time consuming busy stressful jobs....Like Kali said what is hard....

    true but working as hard is not a guarantee of winning. and yes natural talent is the single most important factor.

    the point is-there are at least a thousand boys born the same year as Roger Federer who worked just as hard in tennis and had just as much top coaching. Some of those guys are people you may have heard of-David Nalbandian for one. 990 you have never heard of and never will.

    Everyone has a specific threshold unique to their own capabilities, IMO rich or poor has nothing to do with it.

    I don't know why you're equating 'hard work' with 'must earn more money' - whereas many companies favor 'higher education and more mentally capable individuals' over these 'physical labor oriented ones' because it's skills, education, experience that matters most - ALWAYS. Because there are less of these individuals whereas grunt work has a high-turnover rate.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    College is not for everyone and usually to get white collar jobs you must have a degree. Just because you are math smart does not make you smarter than the average blue collar worker out busting their ass doing hard labor. As a matter of fact some of those blue collar workers may be able to out debate you on any given subject.

    This is the difference of human capital. Anyone can push a broom or make change in a cash register. The number of people who can do what I do is significantly lower.
    No Gipper everybody CANNOT push a broom or make change in a cash register.

    This whole thread is yet another classism thread.
