Thoughts On the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team Pay Controversy

In an ideal world, an employee would be paid solely on their ability to accomplish the goals of their job. Factors such as a race and/or sex would not play a role in determining an employee’s salary.

But the reality is women are paid less than men.

Recently, the U.S. Women’s Soccer team broke a World Cup record by defeating Thailand 13-0. But they are still being paid less than their counterparts who play on the Men’s team.

I’m the first to admit that I am not a soccer fan. I have, at best, a rudimentary understanding of how the game is played. But I firmly believe that these women deserve not only all of the accolades, but the salary that comes with the accolades.Without a shadow of a doubt, they deserve and have earned the same salary that their male counterparts earn.
