Which one is the correct sentence?
If they both need grammar work do tell.
a)This gives evidence that people will work hard, but will never receive a fair deal for their effort.
b)This gives evidence that people will be working hard, but will never receive a fair deal of their effort
Neither sentence is good, primarily because of the word "never."
how about replacing never with do not.
The point is that you cannot prove that all people who work hard will never (or will not) receive a fair deal.
In writing and speaking, it's not a good idea to use the words or ideas "never" or "always." They are unrealistic and not provable.
