The U.S. Senate urges the U.S. Soccer Federation to give the team equal pay.
Earlier this year, members of the U.S. women's soccer team made a really great point about income inequality.
Their point basically being, "Hey, why are we being paid only about one-fourth what you're paying the men?" The U.S. women's soccer team generates more revenue then the U.S. men's soccer team and is far more successful than the men's team — so what's up with the pay difference?
Five members of the team filed a wage-discrimination action with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in hopes of getting the U.S. Soccer Federation to bump their pay equal to their male counterparts.
