Overpaid or Deserved
Over the last decade, entertainment industry was/and still booming, and those who work there get paid a lot compared to others working at different professions taking into account that a job in the entertainment industry isn't even classified as a profession.
For example, elite football (soccer) players get paid from 100K up to even exceeding 600K per week.
Also, in boxing, for instance, Floyd Mayweather who's an undefeated boxer with a record of 49-0 came out after 2 years of retirement to fight a guys who wasn't even a boxer (a mixed martial arts fighter). Mayweather won the fight in 28.05 minute to walk out with over $300 million! Mayweather is considered as one of the most boring boxers, but people still pay to watch him wishing he'd lose his fight!!
Last year, two YouTubers decided to fight each other in a boxing ring claiming that they despise each other, and they'd love to squash their beef physically as that's the proper way to sell tickets in the boxing industry. The YouTubers performed very poorly and they were no way near to the entertainment level. However, they walked out with $900K for each one.
So, are entertainers overpaid or fairly paid?
