Be Interesting Or Be Paid?

It seems like there are two situations about boring jobs. If you don’t have any other options, then they’ll pay you as little as possible. If you have other options (i.e. some particular skills) then you get a “useless-at-cocktail-parties premium”, more pay than the work exactly merits simply because it’s mind-numbing or uninteresting.

However, I’m unsure whether the above thought is content-less or not. It feels so obvious that I shouldn’t bother saying it. And yet it also feels like it explains some things I’ve been baffled by.
