De Blasio promises equal pay for female athletes if he becomes president

He doesn't even pay his own female employees equally

From the Post:

Although women make up half of City Hall's 10 highest earners, the men — including de Blasio — hold four of the five best-paying jobs, with annual salaries that range from $258,000 to $403,000, records show.

Because of that, men in the administration earn an average of $58,400 a year more than their female colleagues, leaving the women earning just 81 cents for every dollar earned by the men.
"The numbers are so clear, we have an administration that's over 50 percent women in the top positions, absolute equity in the top positions, there's a handful of higher-paid positions, at this moment in history some are men and some are women," said de Blasio, in an attempt to defend his administration's salaries.

New York City emergency services workers were not pleased with de Blasio's focus on women's national team pay when there is pay inequality in his own city.

I'd like to see what happens when they apply this to, say, the WNBA. Average female athlete makes about 80k.
Average NBA player makes around 6 MILLION.
So, pay all WNBA players 6 million, bankrupt the league and they're all out of work.
So glad we have sensible people running for office.

Naw, they'll just raise taxes and subsidize the whole thing. It's the Demonrat solution to everything.

It was opined Tap / Tax the Male League to subsidize the Women's League
Heck, why stop there? Why not tap football and basketball to subsidize soccer?
Why not make sure ALL athletes get paid the same? If my kids become curling champs, why shouldn't they be paid the same as Super Bowl champs?
