If a woman performs the same job as a man, she should receive the same pay. That’s common sense.The same goes for people with white skin and brown skin, or red hair or blonde hair, or green eyes, and so on. Pay should be based on one thing alone: the work performed. Period. This is exactly what happens in a well-functioning market, because employers who engage in pay discrimination will end up losing their underpaid workers to other companies, resulting in their own loss of productivity and profits.
