Many people pretend that they work simply for social recognition rather than financial benefits. However, I believe those people are just too idealistic and not pragmatic enough to realize the main purpose of jobs for most people.

Admittedly, a small number of people work for something else, say, the social recognition other than money. People like Bill Gates or Steve Jobs just work out of their interests or the needs to maintain their status in people’s minds. However, not everybody is a tycoon who does not work for money only because he or she has more than enough money . Most people,believe it or not, are driven by money in their jobs.

 

Firstly, most people need the money they earn to make them both materially and spiritually satisfied. Human beings are animals of both nature and society. A great deal of money people earn are actually spent to satisfy their social or natural needs. Actually, according to a local investigation, 98% families with an average income spend 80% of their salaries on food, housing and schooling. Without the money they earn, people can barely carry on their lives. As a result, for ordinary people, the main purpose of working becomes earning enough money to make a living and this partially explains why people tend to be panic when they lose their jobs. Take my uncle for example. In the 2008 economic crisis, he lost his job as a food manager. It suddenly occurred to him that job opportunity was so important to him that if he could not get reemployed in a month, he may face starvation. Thus, I maintain that the motivation of a job for an ordinary man like my uncle lies in the fact that the money that it provides ensures the basic subsistence.

 

Another equally important point is that many people keep changing their jobs mainly in order to get higher salaries rather than acquiring social recognition . People may have a lot of excuses for job-hopping; however, the fundamental reason will always be related to money. Once the economic benefits of a new job can compensate for other losses, people will never hesitate to choose it. This fact is especially true for athletes. Many soccer players from Latin America or Africa travel thousands of miles to play for European clubs because of the astronomical incomes. Top basketball players in the world always want to play in the NBA largely because it gives highest salary. Take Yao Ming for example. The Chinese center, when interviewed just after his debut in NBA some 10 years ago, complained about displacement and loose connections with his family and friends. However, he chose to play in NBA and seemed to forget about all those inconveniences. The reason is more than obvious: he earns 50 times more than he could in China.

 

I concede that a few people do work for social recognition but what encourages most people to work is the financial benefits offered by their jobs
