It is

, that the sports people enjoy much better salaries, than other professionals.

introduces two alternatives
it is fair or not. From my point of view, each profession is worthy, so the big gap between sportsmen's and other's earnings is not justified. On the one hand, there are many arguments, supporting the high incomes in sports.

can serve an Armenian chess player Levon Aronyan, who contributed to the increase of Armenia's fame in the world. Another argument, supporting the idea, that sportsmen should earn more is the statement that they are excellent models for

of the healthy lifestyle.
On the other hand
, one cannot deny that all types of job are

of human and non-human needs.
, it would be very difficult to live in a world, where people are in need of doctors, teachers, chemists, cooks, to name but a few. So the
of those who want to see balance in incomes between sportsmen and other profession in terms of payment is understandable. If a sportsman is a model,
who is a teacher? The teachers are responsible for the education of a society, but they earn very little,
to sports people. To sum up, despite the fact, that famous sport stars can support others and deserve
payment, other professions should not be underestimated, so there is a need to decrease the noticeable gap of salaries.
