In an ideal world, an employee would be paid solely on their ability to accomplish the goals of their job. Factors such as a race and/or sex would not play a role in determining an employee’s salary.
But the reality is women are paid less than men.
Recently, the U.S. Women’s Soccer team broke a World Cup record by defeating Thailand 13-0. But they are still being paid less than their counterparts who play on the Men’s team.
I’m the first to admit that I am not a soccer fan. I have, at best, a rudimentary understanding of how the game is played. But I firmly believe that these women deserve not only all of the accolades, but the salary that comes with the accolades.Without a shadow of a doubt, they deserve and have earned the same salary that their male counterparts earn.
