Maybe in the case of public servants like school teachers we actually get to decide how much we value their contributions to our society and we choose via the democratic process to elect a government that sets their pay and taxes accordingly. Maybe we could also democratically decide that there are other public services that the market (increasingly dominated by the plutocrats) undervalues that should be collectively funded: nursing care, child care, more and nicer public areas.

Or we could snidely deride anyone advocating for that, or even simply critiquing the status quo, as angry class warriors.
