U.S. Women’s Soccer Team Are Out to Bust Balls Over Unequal Pay

The Nation

It turns out that the U.S. Women’s Soccer team has realized their worth, and is now demanding the same rights as their male counterparts.

On Friday, Alex Morgan, Megan Rapinoe, Carli Lloyd, Julie Ertz, and other members of the team filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Soccer Federation.

It states the following:

“Despite the fact that these female and male players are all called upon to perform the same job responsibilities on their teams … the female players have been consistently paid less money than their male counterparts.”

Apparently, the women’s soccer team is 10x better than the men’s team. And they have the proof to prove it. Currently, the U.S. Women’s Soccer team holds the title as world champions, as well as qualify for perennial contenders– in comparison to the men’s team. According to TMZ, their male counterparts didn’t even qualify for the 2018 World Cup.

It’s also important to know that in the lawsuit, the women state gender discrimination.

Times are sure changing!
