    "How do we decide what people should be paid for their jobs?" - sense

    I found such a question in one of the speaking tasks "How do we decide what people should be paid for their jobs?" I don't understand what's the purpose of the question. Does it concern the connection between one's abilities/expertise and the earnings? Do I understand correctly?

    How do you decide how much a plumber should be paid? How do you decide how much a teacher should be paid? How do you decide how much a doctor should be paid? How do you decide how much a police officer should be paid?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
