Most recently, the U.S. women’s national soccer team has admitted that they are paid the same if not more than the U.S. men’s national team.
They have specifically argued that they have “to work more than a man and be much more successful” to receive “about the same pay,” Daily Wire reports.
The Daily Wire also reported that the women’s team has rejected the same pay structure that the men’s team uses.

The Hill reported that the women’s team has appealed the May 2020 decision of Judge Gary Klausner, who dismissed the team’s claims that they were discriminated against because of their gender on the issue of pay…

“The WNT was willing to forgo higher bonuses for benefits, such as greater base compensation and the guarantee of a higher number of contracted players,” Klausner wrote in his ruling. “Accordingly, plaintiffs cannot now retroactively deem their CBA (collective bargaining agreement) worse than the MNT (men’s national team) CBA by reference to what they would have made had they been paid under the MNT’s pay-to-play terms structure when they themselves rejected such a structure.”
The women’s team previously attempted to get the pay discrimination claim reinstated by appealing to the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Now, they’ve filed their direct appeal of Klausner’s ruling, claiming it was “based on a flawed analysis of the team’s compensation, despite the abundant evidence of unequal pay”… The appeal, filed by 28 current and former players, requested Klausner reconsider several factors, including the fact that the women’s team, on average, wins more games than the men’s team.
