But it's not unreasonable for joe-****ing-welder to be making 100K in this province. By arguing this, you don't know **** all about this economy. I don't care what the numbers say; i'm out here living it. Business ain't too bad lately, depending where you're working.

It seems like you've focused on some pretty pathetic **** here. C'mon, we're nitpicking welder salaries...
What are you talking about you brought up the "average joe" and then used the highest precentile of earnings to be "average". If you want to compare numbers then use the average if you want to support the players because they work hard then by all means do it but don't act like they are underpaid by any means.
