In an equal world, they would. Here is a great vision of equality. It involves paying people what they are REALLY worth.
“I tried to picture a culture where the valuing was equal. In my wilder moments I imagined a society that paid child care workers, teachers, homeless advocates, poets, and bird watchers as much as it paid professional football players, generals, and corporate CEO’s. I tried to imagine a church where it mattered less what your beliefs and practices were and more how relationships were nurtured and healed.
(Sue Monk Kidd, Dance of the Dissident Daughter, p 63)
