Change The World Topic PLN

An injustice I picked when we were asked to think about it was, how under paid policemen and fire fighters are paid for what they do. Fire fighters are paid around 50,000 dollars a year and police are paid about 30,000 dollars. They should be paid much more because of what they do for the community and how they risk their lives everyday just to save other people or keep people from getting in trouble. While athletes are paid millions of dollars every year just to entertain people while the workers and heroes of the community are saving lives everyday and are not getting paid even close to what the entertainers are. If there was a lot of crime or people dieing or homes getting burned down in fires there would be nobody to entertain in the long run. People kind of take cops and fire fighters for granted because they are just always there to do the job and nobody thinks twice about it except the people's houses that get saved and lives that get saved. Clearly, police and firemen are undermined in the community and cities and need more rewards and yearly earnings.
