The interesting topic came to my mind, why we pay essential services so little. The hero’s in our hospital system, the firemen that rush into burning houses, the police that rush to our aid. Why is the pay so low for these people? I do understand the moral complexities of paying essential services higher amounts, but what about giving them a palatable retirement package. How can we provide a luxury life for a retired politician, and a less than frugal life for a retired essential services worker.
These are the questions I wish I would hear discussed at coffee shops around the country. These are the concepts that need to be raised and debated. I am more than sure politicians earn their income, I would like to see their reward at the end, their retirement, flattened out a little bit more, perhaps they should donate a percentage of their retirement fund to service people. That why for inspiring you guys, here the fact that billionaire in the planet Earth still have a hearth. Tech giant in silicon valley donate Billions of they wealthy to people.
Their gift of $992 million (or 18 million shares of Facebook stock) went to the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is one of the youngest self-made billionaires in the world.

Microsoft’s in 2015 donating/contribute $135.2 million. Gates, who has held the title of “World’s Richest” human for 15 of the last 20 years, has given away more than any living person. In 2010, Gates and Warren Buffett announced “The Giving Pledge”—a campaign for billionaires to commit to giving a majority of their billions to philanthropic causes. By May 2014, there were 127 pledges, including current tech CEOs Elon Musk (SpaceX, PayPal), Dustin Moskovitz (Facebook), and the previously mentioned Zuckerberg.
As an individual philanthropist, Marc Benioff (CEO) focused most of his attention to giving back to the community of San Francisco. His 10,000 employees give 1 percent of their company time to community service, which doesn’t sound like a lot, but that has already added up to more than 650,000 local hours. Benioff also matched his $100 million donation to a children’s hospital in San Francisco to a children’s hospital in Oakland, a location Benioff labels as a “community of promise” that hasn’t benefited from the tech boom in the same way that San Francisco has.
