While your oodles of sarcasm are delightful, there will always be someone who does less work than you but still gets paid the same. It happened all the time in the jobs I had up until this point, and I've heard all about it from people who are already in the industry. Joe Schmoe isn't a person; he's a fact of life.
Could you give a specific example of "someone who does less work than you but still gets paid the same"?

This happens all the time. It's not uncommon at all. But after a while, you get the promotions and raises and they don't. Maybe they lose their job. Maybe they continue at that level of production and their career plateaus.

If this isn't, in general, how it works at your company, it's time to find a new place to work. Having said that, it's also the responsibility of each employee to make their work and their value known and not to passive-aggressively complain on the internet.

The world isn't designed to be fair, but your boss wants the best possible people working for him. Make your boss successful and you will be fine.
