    Does hard work always lead to a higher income

    Does hard work always lead to a higher income?

    The reason I ask this is that I see a lot of people assuming that people with a low income are lazy.

    Your use of the word "always" in the poll question requires the answer to be "no".

    The worst misconception ever. I know people that make virtually nothing, but work harder than any mofo I've ever met.

    In short, the answer to your question is no.

    It depends on how you define hard work. When it comes to physical labor you probably aren't going to make much more. If you're a businessman or a student earning a degree, working hard to earn commission or get a degree that will guarantee you a high paying job will lead to a higher income. I think education earns higher wages along with work ethic. Although, sometimes things aren't fair and those who work extremely hard don't reap what they sow. I voted no, because it isn't in every circumstance that hard work pays off financially.

    Assume
    ass*u*me
    Farmers are very hard workers, they must be.
    The Amish are prime examples.
    But to those who "think" or ass*u*me that those poor people that they see are lazy....... I'd take for neighbors any day the poor people over the holier than thou snobs....
    Laziness strikes all , I wish I knew why..

    I think the word always is an important piece of this question. If the assumption is that higher income people work harder than lower income people than hard work should lead to a higher income.

    No because the world isnt black and white like that, working harder in addition to working smarter typically leads to a bigger reward.
    Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.

    That doesn't address the question, which is about hard work. In a sense what I am really asking is that is everyone that is poor in that situation because they are lazy?

    Its not simply being to lazy to work harder. Its aspiring to be something more. I could work 5x timer harder digging ditches then anyone else but in the end I would still be a ditch digger.
