Of all the possible employment careers that you know of, what is the one most overpaid and the one most underpaid.

I think CEO jobs of any company or corporation is grossly overpaid. The least overpaid are the school teachers at any grade level.

And how do you determine how much to pay a person who is working for your company? What would be some of the factors you’d use?

In my opinion, the most overpaid is a US congressman and the most underpaid is a classroom teacher.

Most (not all) congressmen and government employees are lobbyists in training for corporations.

Thanks for this one. It's too funny to drink a cup of coffee while watching it.

If you were to use that phrase ('over ad under') at my work, you might get replies that would shock you, lol.
I agree though, that there are those who are so overpaid, while the typical blue collar worker has to struggle just to survive. Teachers and EMTs are two of the most underpaid jobs. But then, cops dont exactly make bank, either. Kinda irritating, but thats life I guess......

CEO's are way over paid you'd think they cured cancer. I agree with teachers being under-paid.

CEO's and congressmen are on the same level for me when it comes to being overpaid. I also cannot believe the amount that some actors and recording artists make! Teacher's and some nurses are definitely underpaid in my book, also my husband who is a very hard worker and not scared to roll up sleeves and help others.
