Yes, because I do not think brain surgeons are fundamentally massively superior to bin men. Years of training required to become competent as a brain surgeon should probably result in a significantly higher salary, in order to reward commitment. Not so much as even double a binman's salary, however. 18 year old binmen and 1st year med students? They should be on roughly the same money IMO.

And what do you do when all your doctors go abroad where they can get paid several times more?

All of them would do that, would they? Sure? If any did they could be quickly replaced with decent, fair-minded, egalitarian, patriotic citizens...or hopefully robots. If that didn't work I guess they'd need to be tempted to stay with some form of incentive, financial or otherwise. There aren't all that many jobs that DEMAND a six-figure salary and are also largely essential. Oh yeah, and splitters could have their citizenship revoked :tongue:
