Should women and men have equal pay for the same job?
I honestly can't believe people could say the women should not have equal pay.
Each individual worker SHOULD be compensated (not paid) exactly the equilibrium amount between that compensation and the value that they provide. This is in the absence of governmental interference in the market.
Surprised that men agreed to this more then women.
You'll get paid the same if you do as good of a job
Unfortunately, you probably won't.
Fortunately, they do.
It's not that women shouldn't have equal pay. Women shouldn't be given the same amount of money solely because they are women. If a company has a starting salary for 25k that should be the same for both men and women. If after 5 years on the job a man is making 30k and woman should not automatically given that money.
If job performance and productivity are the same then yes.
