After fighting for equal pay for a very long time the U.S. Women’s soccer team reached a milestone moment today. U.S. Soccer announced that men’s and women’s national teams will now receive equal pay. A truly historic moment. The big piece of the deal, which runs through 2028, is the prize money during the World Cup. Teams get paid bonus based on how far the advance in the tournament. The Men’s national team always received a high bonus rate. They will be equal now.
To be honest the women’s team has kind of been much better than the men as of late… maybe the women should even get more pay! Ha ha
All joking aside, this is a great moment for the future of women’s sports.
