I used to hate the "double standard" as well. Since living here though, it makes perfect sense and I now fully support it.

1) Some of my friends make about $10 a day, so even at discounted prices, they're still paying a huge amount to partake in the activities in their neighborhood.

2) Since I pay less, I'm willing to try out a lot of places I would otherwise never go. For businesses, that means they get some business during the low season, but more importantly, it means I'm more likely to bring people to them when my friends/family visit.
