The BBC commissioned research from ComRes about what the public believes 15 different professions should pay.

Those people surveyed were not told what the real pay levels were in those professions.

Note, it’s what these professions *should* pay not what people think they do pay.

According to the survey the public think that Premiership Footballers should be the highest earners in the country (though they should only earn about £1000 a day rather than the four and half they currently earn on average).

Depressing much?
