Wow Gladwell comes off as out of touch and kind of insane.
He states that the AVG salary at Google is over 240k but if they lowered it everyone would quit. Avg family if 4 in US makes 50k. You only quit your 240k job that turned to 200k when you have other jobs to pay that amount. There are not thousands and thousands of 1℅ jobs.
In another section he argues that college football players should be paid because their sports make money. Ok..great..then every athlete that has a sport that loses money (everyone but football and basketball) should have to pay for their tuition, hotel, ref, fields, buses, etc.
You have to be consistent, if football players get paid than women’s soccer had to pay to play.
