Some professions offer a lot of money for doing something that seems insignificant. Reddit users share some of these professions and why they are considered to be overpaid.
One person shared, “My aunt is a landlord with 4 properties. The tenants pay for their repair and maintenance in exchange for low rent, which is still a good deal because the rent really is the lowest in the area. They send her the rent and it autopays the mortgage company. I sometimes wonder if anyone would even notice if she died.”
Another said Realtors are useless. “If the job ceased to exist, the world would not change. For the amount of work they do, the pay seems way outsized. List my house online, show a few buyers, talk to a few other agents, and then complete a stack of paperwork and get several tens of thousands for doing it?”
Reaction streamers make money by watching and reacting to videos online. While it can be entertaining, it’s not exactly a difficult job and some argue that they are overpaid for what they do.
Hedge Fund Manager
Hedge fund managers make a lot of money, despite the fact that studies have shown that monkeys can do just as well at managing funds. One person said, “They add NOTHING of value and make hundreds of thousands to hundreds of millions. DESPITE the fact that every year there is a study done where literal monkeys- MONKEYS- are given the opportunity to mange the same finds and the monkeys do statistically better. So statistically, they DECREASE the value of their funds compared to random actions. Yet they make the most money. It is an atrocity that our capitalist worshiping society refuses to acknowledge.”
Feet Pic Seller
One person said feet pic sellers, who make money by selling pictures of their feet are paid too much for what they do.
However, one person shared that it’s not as easy as it seems. They said, “they actually do a lot to maintain their feet. It’s pretty interesting. I’ve talked to some. It’s kinda wild”
