Considering the reduced payouts for jobs, it makes less sense now to even do missions (if you need cash) regardless of R* assertion that it's for the purpose of "variety". Grabbing cars for Simeon now pays out more than any "low level" job from any of the NPC's...I mean you can get 9k from a car...where's the incentive to even do missions any longer? R* is showing their greed and incompetence in one fell swoop with every adjustment they make it's clear their initial intention was the cash cards and nothing more.
Think about it, you can earn almost 20k an hour simply delivering cars to Simeon and occasionally selling one to LSC why do missions? I've gone from overly ecstatic to not giving a sh!t anymore. I hope they see the error in their ways and reverse some of their thinking.
