U.S. Women’s Soccer Team Stars Allege Pay Discrimination

U.S. Women


Quote:
The federal complaint, which was unveiled Thursday, alleges that the players earn a fraction of their male counterparts for national team appearances—sometimes as little as 38%. The players bringing the complaint, which they say comes on behalf of the whole team, are all veterans who played key roles in turning the U.S. into the most recognizable women’s team in soccer: captain Carli Lloyd, goalkeeper Hope Solo, midfielder Megan Rapinoe, defender Becky Sauerbrunn and striker Alex Morgan.
They should be happy they have a job. Not like anyone pays attention to women's sports anyhow right?????

Heard the report a couple days ago. They generate MORE money than men's soccer and get paid less than half their male counterparts.
