Is it ethical for a web developer to accept a salary this high?

Is it ethical for a web developer to accept a salary this high? How do you sleep at night knowing the amount of work you do is grossly disproportionate to what you are paid?

    lmao stock options don't count as "salary", they're a benefit.

      200k is already stupid high for the the amount of value you create, your job is a net negative on society.

          I make 180k. Problem is I have to support my lazy fucking wife and kids. It's honestly nothing, and I mean nothing, for someone in my position. I agree that if you're a young bachelor though it's insane.

            How is $180k nothing? That's over $10k a month after taxes. You'd have to be some kind of retard to not be able to comfortably support a family of 4 on that.

    why is it disproportionate if literally billions of people use your product?
    those companies want to stay on top of the competition and make sure they have the best people working for them.

      Because there's nothing even remotely difficult about writing javascript for websites and any half retarded 3rd worlder could do your job just as well as you if not better. Your position comes solely from a combination of luck and nepotism. A construction worker's job is more difficult than yours, both physically and intellectually.

        There's plenty of skill and effort involved in writing performant, scalable applications.
        If you have to pay someone one million a year to make your application 0.1% better it's worth it if billions of people use it. Sorry, if economics is too hard for you.
        Also lol at construction work being more difficult. Something being physically exhausting doesn't make it more difficult.

          Construction work is more intellectually stimulating than 99% of the work that modern "programmers" do.
