Women's Soccer Stars Sue For Equal Pay

March 31, 2016
They want to get paid, and deservedly so. The five most prominent members of the US Women's National Team have filed an action with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (a government agency) accusing U.S. Soccer of wage discrimination in relation to the money the federation pays to the U.S. Men’s National Team.

They argue that they earn 4 times less than the men do. And unlike some sports, this is not a situation where the men's team generates more revenue. In fact according to the report the women's team has generated dramatically more revenue over the last couple years.
