Would you pay|everyone the same?

50%

It's hard to say - "paying everyone the same" can mean so many different things to different people

50%

Yes - so many of the issues affecting wages are due to factors outside people's control that it's not fair to pay them differently

50%

No - people should be rewarded differently for different types of work, and trying to make things equal could cause more problems than it solves

50%

It's complicated - some jobs are worth more, but our perception of what makes a job worth more or less money is tied up with lots of other prejudices

    If everyone is paid the same, who will want to try for doing more with no benefit to them?

    Life is based on hierarchy and one way to establish that is through pay, and I don't think higher earners are will give up that power sadly.

    All jobs are different , but some jobs are harder than others and require more time. For these jobs people should be payed greater amounts.

    I think that there should some jobs that early teens should be able to do and should be paid about 1£ under the minimum pay for adults.

    i think that kids should get more pocket money so they can but things they need and they should also be allowed to have a bank card.

    There is income inequality. Paying everybody the same would be a bad idea but tackling unconscious biases and societal/psychological is good
