How much would you pay for it

Posted: May 19, 2015 in Uncategorized

History tells us that, the first fire brigade in recorded history was in Ancient Rome. Marcus Licinius Crassus recognized the need for, fire protection. Marcus created a 500 man team. The team would rush to the fire and debate the cost of their services while the building burned. This was an explotive scheme at best. Despite its exploitative nature the fire brigade makes one think about the value of service. 

How much is your house worth to you? The median income for a firefighter in the United States is, 43, 551 dollars a year. A fast food workers median income is 20,000 a year. A factory worker has a median income of 45,000 a year. An average IT salary in United States is 83000 a year. So here in the United States we live in a time when our computers are more valuable to us than our houses and our houses fire protection is more valuable than a dinner at McDonald’s. We live in a strange world.
