The soccer gender pay gap is ridiculous
Assume I’m dead and rotting when this isn’t reblogged from my dash.
Update from April 2017:
Source: CNN Money, http://money.cnn.com/2017/04/05/news/us-womens-soccer-equal-pay/index.html
“The U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team is getting a raise, bigger bonuses and the same per diems as the men.
The women’s team announced Wednesday that it had struck a new labor deal with U.S. Soccer, the sport’s governing body. For months, the women have said that their pay and treatment is unequal to the men’s team.
The women will also get better hotel and travel accommodations and will be reimbursed for the years when their per diems were less than those of the men.”
Finally some good news for the USWNT!
Reblogging with the bit that gives the outrage some closure.
