Re: Chris Wood Brokers Equal Pay Deal

I’m all for a more equal fairer society, but I don’t get this. There are footballers playing for the same team in the EPL where some are on tens of thousands a week and others are on hundreds of thousands a week. Should players in the MENS English championship and lower leagues be payed the same as EPL players? Is female football truly on a par with the male game?
A boozer I used to drink in, the barman used to work a busy Sunday afternoon shift on his own, come six o’clock two females took over and were each payed more an hour than the barman, even though the bar was quieter after six, why was the barman payed less even though he did more work? Answer - he was under twenty one. Minimum wage is unequal and unfair and many companies are also paying staff below minimum wage, how? Because they are claiming staff are ‘apprentices’ and minimum wage doesn’t count.
Discrimination and inequality is much more prevalent on our own doorsteps, perhaps our heroes could do more for the average ‘man in the street’ by taking our national governments to task as well as sporting governing bodies.
I notice Woods sister and girlfriend play football.
Anyway, I suppose every little helps in the fight for equality.
