For the first time in Japan’s history, females voluntarily working at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics will receive equal pay.
“This is a great moment in the progression of women’s rights in our glorious country,” Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told reporters.
“Women will also receive nothing.”
Tokyo Olympic organizers say female volunteers will receive the exact same amount of zero as their male compatriots.
“Yesterday, Japan commercialized the do-it-yourself colonoscopy, today we have gender equality,” said Tokyo 2020 Vice Director General Yusuke Sakasakasu.
“The progression is staggering.”
Japanese women have told reporters through their husbands while cleaning the house and looking after the kids that it’s pleasing they are finally starting to get equal pay.
Online recruitment of the 80,000 volunteers to work for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics will begin at 1 p.m. on September 26.
“Foreigners will have to pay for the privilege,” said Sakasakasu.
