Eeewwww! Politics was always creepy to me – after all, who spends a friggin’ fortune to get a temporary job that doesn’t pay very well… now I have to imagine this whole bread and circuses crap not happening simply yearly for the past couple centuries but infinitely looping – brrrryuck!
“doesn’t pay very well”? You must be infinitely naive in order to entertain such a notion for even a split second.
It depends on the country and what you consider a reasonable return.
The return is not in money, it’s power.
It isn’t the salary that makes holding high offices so lucrative (though I’ve never heard of city counselors and up making less than six figures either) it’s the business deals the position and authority allows you to conduct with your new influence.
