    • Dear Luke,
      I strongly agree with your thoughts on the wage gap in sports, because I believe women are working just as hard as men, therefore they should be paid equally. Here is a website that talks more about the wage gap between men and women in sports.

    • Dear Luke,
      I honestly dont know much about tennis or how they distribute the pay between the players, but I do understand the UFC. The ultimate fighting competition I feel is a great example of equal pay in the world of sports. The fighters each get paid based on how much money they bring in, not on how much the commissioner decides is enough.

      This is a cool video of Dana White (the owner of the UFC) talking about equal pay and how Ronda Rousey made a ton of money fighting because of the fact that people loved watching her. She helped bring in a ton of money for the UFC and was paid because of her performance in the octagon. I dont know if this is the same in all sports but another good example in the WNBA VS. the NBA. The WNBA brings in significant less viewers so of course they arent going to make as much as NBA players. I wish to do more research on this topic but thank you for writing about this.

  • Hi Kaan, I really enjoyed reading your article on the obstacles that marijuana faces. I agree with you when you stated that marijuana created more jobs and generates more money. I found a article that expands more on marijuana legalization,…Read More
