So, what M’Lester is saying is that the US mens team, who didn’t even play, got 9% of $4 billion, while the US women, who not only DID play, but also WON got 13% of $73 million.
And he presents this as evidence of fairness and equality due to the so called “Free Market”?
And, just in case you haven’t worked it out yourself yet:
$4,000,000,000 × .09 = $360,000,000
$73,000,000 × .13 = $9,490,000
And that’s then divided up among the team, coaches and so on, right?
So what you are saying then is that ALL the women, ALL over the world are being cheated, not just the US Team? Ok, I get that, you are right. And you blame that on the Free Market? Sorry, dude, I think it’s evidence of a world wide problem, not just an American problem.
And, it seems, that YOU are part of the problem, for allowing it to happen, for making excuses for it to happen, and for trying to explain it away as something “normal”.
Mr. Lester, women, being paid less than men, for doing the same thing, is NOT normal. Your “Free Market Capitalism” is clearly not working.
Or rather, it works for YOU, so what do you care?
