Pakistani wages

The low wages paid to Pakistani cricketers has been put forward as one reason that the players were tempted to allegedly take money in return for spot fixing elements of matches. Yes, they are paid a huge amount compared to the vast majority Pakistanis, but it must be galling seeing your close neighbours in India earning their much higher wages. And no doubt Pakistani cricketers spend a fair bit of time away from home observing the higher living standards of other cricketing countries.

So I thought this article was interesting looking at wages, and strategies around wages for companies. It also gives an insight into reasons why football and banking wages have escalated. A solution to the wage imbalance around world cricket? I'll have to think on there, but if you have any suggestions put them forward!
