While some of what you write is true, the revelations about the BBC have shown that the remuneration system is geared to allowing people from the right background at various organisations to pay other people from the right backgrounds far more than they are worth. When a newsreader is somehow worth more than a Prime Minister (present one excepted), a general officer, a medical consultant or a Chief Constable, we have the right to ask why since we are paying for it. When you read about growing inequality with vast pay increases at one end while food bank use is increasing at the other (and many of the people using them are in work), you should be angry at what is effectively institutionalised theft.

Women should be paid the same as men for doing the same job. Pay scales should reflect the real investment in training and education needed to get there, and the responsibility once there. But asking for equality with inflated salaries organised by the Old Boys Network is not progress.
