  • They’re the country’s most successful soccer team. But the women of the US national soccer team get paid, on average, roughly 38% as much as the members of the men’s national team. Here’s why that’s a major problem. #CNN #News #Cillizza #Politics #WorldCup

    The US women’s national team has fought for years to increase their pay. Do you think 2019 will see any changes?

      Glenn V wrong. They insist gender exists. We just have to ask them on a daily basis what gender terms if any we can use to identify them. Otherwise ya assuming a man is a man or a woman is a woman is threatening a snowflakes existence.

      1) The wage gap for women's soccer is because nobody watches it, there's no TV ads making billions of dollars.
      2) There can't be a gender pay gap because you told us there is no such thing as gender.

    The NBA generated $4 BILLION dollars. They generated 100 times more than the WNBA. The more you make, the more you can recoup to your players. Want women to get paid more to play? Simple. Sell more merch. Put people in the seats. Get people watching. It's simple really.

    REVENUE MATTERS
    US Men verse skilled top teams in WC and Copa Oro; therefore, they lose. Even though they lose, Men like to watch soccer/football/baseball/basketball whereas Women I bet, don't even watch there own soccer team as much and supposedly there is more Women in the US.
    US Women are obviously good in WC and win it; however, they go against teams that aren't really good compared to Men teams. The US Women could get beat by high school men teams easily and know the truth. I even forgot their was a Women's WC until Thailand (sh*t team). The point is, women shouldn't get equal pay. If in doubt, look up Jordan Peterson on Pay Gap, he says to acknowledge the "Why?" on why the pay is different between Men and Women, it relates to this topic.

    Just in case, if straight Men tomorrow were to go transgender since its acceptable in 2019, not shaming and not homophobic, the real Women's team would cease to exist without a doubt. Just being honest and Women's team should be grateful they get coverage on television and get paid more than the average working class. In addition, this is bias. They want to appease the Women community to not get fired. LIke others, some leave out the FIFA. You can't leave out anything. Do you eat a taco without a tortilla? You need all the info to make a statement on the matter. They show all these statistics, if Women win yet Men lose but have similar comparison, that means people like to watch Men way more despite losing. Facts. US Men 2014 WC generated a whole lot more than US Women overall in WC. Investors want to invest more in Men than in Women. Its not about discrimination, its a business.

      Like how Alejandro A commented in another video,
      "3.575 billion tuned in for the last broadcast in the Russia WC and a total of 1 billion viewers tuned in with in 3 weeks so 3 weeks to accumulate 1/3 of viewers while one broadcast single handed brought it almost 4 billion viewers, sounds like Women want more then equal. They make it sound so stupid, why do they not specify that it was watched more outside the USA. Why don’t they use world wide numbers because when you spread it out world wide, it sounds like a useless argument. It’s like saying the Super Bowl is the most watched sporting event yet the least watched FIFA game in WC gets almost twice the views."
      It matters how statistics are distributed.
      Supply and demand, females don't have much demand yet want more money.
      ECONOMICS, you learn some Senior year or its common sense that these people don't have.

    She could have been criticizing the fact we have 2 separate sex leagues... But she knows if there was 1 league she wouldn't be on it...
    U.S. Woman's soccer team lost like 6-1 to the Man's 16 and under league.
    So she voluntarily engages in something she knows she wouldn't be able to if men and women were truely equal... Then uses that voluntary decision to spring board her INEQUALITY argument...
    This is ironic comedy at it's best

    "As The Wall Street Journal notes in a recent article:

    "From 2016 to 2018, women's games generated about $50.8 million in revenue compared with $49.9 million for the men, according to U.S. soccer's audited financial statements. In 2016, the year after the World Cup, the women generated $1.9 million more than the men."
    But only about one-quarter of U.S. Soccer's total operating revenue can be attributed to gate revenues, according to the federation's financial documents. The other revenues come mainly from broadcasting and sponsorships, and it's difficult to parse out which teams contribute more to these revenues because U.S. Soccer sells sponsorships and broadcasting rights as a bundled package."

The mens bonuses are slightly higher because they get no other pay or benifits. Plus the women only signed their current contract 2 years ago. They didnt want to gamble wanted the sure thing and complain about it. Sorry CNN is a half the story telling crap show.

  • Aidan W

    Here's a good example of an open market:
    Wimbledon 2019. The men's and women's finals had almost the same viewership. 4.5 million on BBC for the men's final, and 4.6 million for the women's final. The prize money is equal (2.25 million pounds to the victor) for both tournaments, because the revenue is the same, and attendance the same. In terms of the WTA vs the ATP, there remains a gap, as the WTA brought in 69 million in 2014, and the ATP 107 million. Factors make this understandable (the rivalries of Djokovic, Federer, Nadal, Murray in contrast to the dominance of Serena Williams and a lack of high level competition in WTA). And some WTA events pay more than their ATP counterparts. For instance, the 2019 Sydney International had a men's prize of $90,990 for the ATP title, and $141,875 for the women's champion. This can't be explained by the tournament's prestige. It's on the 4th level of prestige in both ATP and WTA, being a 250 event on the ATP tour, and a Premier event on the WTA tour. So therefore, it likely comes down to revenue. I haven't been able to locate a source for the tournament's revenue, given its smaller nature, but here we are faced with an event of the same level, in which women get paid more than men. Revenue is most likely the reason behind that. It's a free market, and what you bring in dictates what you make. Tennis has proven to us that parity between the sexes (revenue was almost equal around 2008) does inevitably result in equal redistribution of funds.

    "Games involving the women's team generated more revenue than games involving the men's team." That's a very carefully worded statistic. It's probably true as it is written, but it implies that the women's team makes more money on a net basis, which is not the same thing.

    Women's soccer just isn't nearly as popular as men's soccer. The fact that the women's team is more successful in their environment than the men's team is within their environment is not really relevant. The players on the best minor league baseball team in the country will never make as much as the players on the worst major league baseball team in the country.

    Men make pretty much all their money off of pool play, on field play time and bonuses, which is bigger then the women's but they have zero base pay.
    Women bonuses are less.
    Women team make 20% of the revenue share money while men make 7%.

    Make the men and women bet their wage. And play for it. Women will still win 😂

    You are distorting the facts
    The women make 22% of what they earn while the men make only 7%
    Men make over 5 billion annually while the women make only 550k
    But the numbers are irrelevant because they agreed and signed the contract agreeing to make only 1/3 of the men’s total pay

      @ecwaufisxtreme women's "soccer" is arguably just another garbage american sport, no one cares except you guys, so stop shoving it down everyone's throat fcol. The women's world cup generated around $100 million I read from another comment. Sterling's market value on the transfer market is over $140 million. Teenagers like Joao Felix and Mbappe are getting sold to Atletico and PSG for over $130 million. That's 1 teenager vs your entire world cup. Next joke please.

      @ecwaufisxtremeseriously? Did you do any research? That may be for the US but billions of people around the world watch the mens and the wc stadiums are filled to the brim. Only america cares about the wwc and the wwc stadiums were very empty.

    They don't get paid because I don't watch women's and many of people don't watch women's football. Men are not paid more because they are men, they are paid more because of large audience which might make lot of profit

    The men’s team generated 6 billion dollars in revenue compared to the women’s 130 million. Based on that the women are WAY over paid. Especially for what they do. Plus almost no one wants to watch soccer, especially women’s soccer lmao.

    You haven't explained why. Also, this guy is a soccer fan...sure. Also, you see how this Great Value Jhon Oliver change equality with equity at 4:30, their not the same thing. Also, "women made more revenue than man" was just a lie when you compare world cups.
