|U.S. Women's Soccer Team makes far less than their male counterparts.|
The U.S. Women's Soccer Team celebrates their amazing victory against Japan in the FIFA Women's World Cup. The team won the week. They are automatically household names.
Sunday's game was watched on Fox by over 25 million viewers.
The team will celebrate in New York today. There will be a hero's celebration in New York after they petitioned for the city for a tinker take parade. Bill de Blasio was willing and even happy to do so.
They already gotten endorsements from national brands.
Carli Lloyd is the hero of the year.
They have inspired women to get involved in sports.
They gotten a call from President Barack Obama.
But did you know that for all their efforts, they only make $2 million and they have to split it equally.
That means that they could walk home with up to $6,000 up to $30,000 respectively.
This is pathetic.
There are calls for lawmakers to pressure FIFA to advocate more reasonable payment to the players.
