The record transfer fee for Fernando Torres is indicative of growing social inequality.
It raises the question of the value attached to the jobs performed by the highest-paid as compared to those paid least.
While I never watch Torres play, I rely on bin collectors to keep my streets clean. How can society allow such a pay gulf to exist?
