Important occupations

Blog Prompt: You have been appointed the head of the Department of Labor and plan to set salaries according to how important an occupation is. What do you think are the top 5 most important occupations?

This is a hard one.
1,2,. I think that doctors, nurses & caregivers should have one of the highest salaries.

3. The police force.

4. Teachers should be up there too, as they have a very important job of educating the next generation.

5. Of course I think that the top pay should go to parents. It does mean though that people who should never be parents would want to be parents just to get the money, so that would be a double edged sword.

I thought your number 5 was very interesting. What about the parents who adopt? Do they count? What about the people who want to be parents but the stupid government won't let them because they are too old, or don't have enough money and all they have is love? Just thought...

It's hard to single out 5. Once you start thinking about it you realise ther are so many you would want to have on the list. Like firefighters etc.
