By Forbes,April. 12, 2016
The women on the U.S. national soccer team don’t get paid as much as the men, so they have filed a complaint with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission . The numbers in the complaint are stark, showing that the women earned less than the men’s national team despite far better performance. Team member Becky Sauerbrunn said, “U.S. Soccer has no justification for paying us as little as they do.” There actually is an economic justification for the women’s soccer pay disparity.
