I think some people are missing the point with my EQUITY meme. If you only pay a doctor the same wage as a garbage collector, doctors will leave your country to pursue more profitable pastures elsewhere. It's what is known as "brain drain" when highly educated professionals leave a country due to unrealistic tax policies, corrupt and oppressive governments, rising crime, outdated obsolete equipment, etc.
Plus, as much as we need garbage collectors to pick up our trash and we should be grateful while also treating those men and women with respect and pay them properly given the health risks they are taking, that does NOT mean they deserve to be paid the same wage as a doctor ($200,000 to $500,000 per year and upwards depending on the medical specialty).
THAT IS THE POINT. Equity is all about EQUAL OUTCOMES, not about equality, and no garbage collector, bus driver, teacher, etc. deserves to have the same financial outcome as doctors that are saving lives and had to spend several years in medical school, have to pay large premiums for medical malpractice insurance, and have to write papers, attend seminars, and take courses during their entire professional lives (just like chartered accountants, lawyers, teachers, etc.) in order to keep the professional medical designation they earned.
Garbage collecting is not a profession and does not have the same level of responsibility as the medical profession or the same level of education and constant training required and therefore it does NOT deserve the same rate of pay, but Socialists, Marxists, and Communists are brainless in this matter.
