So apparently there isn't a gender pay gap Watch

    until men and women stay at home equally, a motherhood pay gap is essentially a gender pay gap. Also, it influences employers in the hiring process because they assume women will want to take maternity leave.
    The average woman will, over her lifetime, cost the employer at least 1 year's salary more than a man doing the same job for the same time. If pay is forced to be equal, the employer would just directly pick the cheaper option during the hiring process.

    I will admit I do prefer men's football too, but I enjoy women's football and I think my main reason for wanting women's football to have more exposure is because my little sister's a cracking little footballer and is going to be amazing when she's older, and unlike boys she'll find it much harder to make a career out of it. I do see your point though
    Well, is suppose this is a matter of perspective. I think that the position women's football has, where almost all the players have to have other jobs, is about right, and the position of men's football is ridiculous. I don't really see why football should be a career rather than a hobby. Somehow I feel that people like Cristiano Ronaldo would be much less obnoxious if they worked as bin men in the week.

    you could equallly argue the same abuot musical artists. as long as they get paid that much, at regular rates then i'll consider it a job. As i deem football as part of the entertainment system.

    I'm robably wrong here but i think that i like cooking, which is a hobby. but if i were to get paid for it then i'd consider it a career

    Cristiano Ronaldo wouldn't be any where near as good at football if he had to pick up litter rather than train during the week.

    We're all talking about ifs.


    Unlikely ifs. putting people into positions which will probably never happen

    back your points up with reasoning or facts. simply saying it's wrong is incorrect to say
