Default Genuine question from liti assoc

Given that there is little job security in law nowadays, and with the constant threat of an onslaught of South Asian professionals courtesy of the CECA agreement, would you say to a junior liti associate at the crossroads that a viable career progression is venturing into local politics given our relatively high politician salaries?

Any advice in burnishing my CV for pivoting into a lucrative political post if one does not want to try for partner at a firm? Do some pro bono work at the grassroots level?

I think minister Sham and Pritam are excellent examples where lawyers have crossed over into politics with amazing career stability, satisfaction, and remuneration (Pritam's $385,000 package excludes his own law job and is far greater than lawyers at his PQE).
