Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? The most important aspect of a job is the money a person earns. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

There has been a long-term debate on the topic that whether money can be the most important aspect of a job or not. In my opinion, money can never buy happiness and hence it can not be the sole determining factor behind any job. I feel this way for three main reasons, which I will explain in the following paragraphs. To begin with, when a man is focused only on earning money rather than his satisfaction from the job he will easily get tired and exhausted. After a certain period of time, he will no longer be interested in his job and will be frustrated. For example, research shows that 1 out of every 4 people in America suffers from mental problems and depression due to workload in the office. Secondly, when he is running only behind materialistic wealth he will miss out on many things in life. If he continuously avoids his personal responsibilities for earning money, after a certain age he will be lonely, and there will be no one with him to enjoy all his wealth. For instance, my uncle who neglected all other duties just to earn money died at an early age out of serious mental illness and depression. Furthermore, if money becomes the most important aspect of a job this will create an unhealthy atmosphere in the office which will lead to many malpractices. There will be competition among employees, which may not be good for the reputation and well-being of the company. For illustration, it has been reported many times that an employee has been falsely alleged of a crime, that he has never committed, just out of jealousy by his peers and this may ruin the person's career. In conclusion, I firmly believe that money can never be the most important aspect of a job as in the long run this will neither be good for the employee nor for the office.
