In a fair and perfect world.
And in a sense that is what is happening.
Chuck makes more than Diego who makes more than a tomato can. But because they are operating in the real world, it wont ever be cut and dry.
please get your head out of the sand...
As for the personal attacks about my head being in the sand and the bubble I live in.
My bubble is running a $13Million project with 20 staff.
My sand box where I hide my head impacts almost every child in the State that I live at some point in their lives.
I make less than 5 of the 20 staff I manage. By your logic I should make the most. But because of fields of profession, local markets, hiring budgets at differing times when people were brought on board, and more it does not fit into your vision of 'making sense'. In the end I accepted my salary for what it is and they theirs. I don't hold it against them and no matter how much they make, I get to guide their work and they answer to me.
UFC sits the fighter or their rep down and says we would like you to fight in the next event. Here are the terms. The person either agrees or disagrees. At a point UFC says, "that is the deal", and the fighter either accept or walks. Each negotiation is different and each fighter accepts based on their own circumstances. That is why the pay scales are not set and won't ever be set.
There are a lot more factors to pay than fairness or 'logic'.
