Equality in human terms is not equal pay but rather an opportunity that is available to each individual to achieve any level of success that they are willing to work for. Some find success in having enough money to have the necessities and a bit left over while others see success in building a business that helps those who don't want to run a business of their own to reach the level of success that they aspire to. There are very few people who are willing to put in the 16 - 18 hour days for years on end that it takes to make a business successful. Fewer still who will risk everything they own to try to make their own way into a successful career as a buisinessperson. Most would rather go to work for someone else who provides all the work, the building and pays all the costs associated with a business including the wages of the individuals who are working for them. You are free, in these United States, to leave your place of employment to start your own business but few do so because they would rather settle for the wages paid every month by the man who did just that.
