  • 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?

      @carpe diem the womens soccer team gets 22 percent of their revenue and the men get 7 percent but I'm just gonna say womens soccer will never get the same because no one watches it. They will not get that money ever because they dont deserve it.

      Philip S this women’s team was crushed by 14 year old boys in 2017 in Dallas 5-2. They are a fn total joke like all of women’s sports. When you’re smart enough to figure that out maybe the rest will fall into place for you, you fn dunce.

    The USWNT wining a bunch of trophys is like wining a trophy in the a u14 boys league it doesn't mean anything because they aren't that great at soccer to begin with they were beaten 5-2 to an u15 boys team they are actually quite bad at the sport in the comparison to the men's team.

    But the numbers are irrelevant because they agreed and signed the contract agreeing to make only 1/3 of the men’s total pay

    Sorry soccer bitches until you draw crowds to your games more than the men then we can talk about equal pay... watching the women's game is like watching it in slow motion.
    Talent speed strength is just not there from the woman's point to put this already boring game on a higher level concerning the women.. facts of nature men's games are faster more talented with a ton more speed more enjoyable to watch...
    Here's an idea and it would draw Millions. The marketplace decides the pay.
    Have the women's us team Challenge the US men's shity soccer team to a match.. you beat the men you get your pay. It would be great TV watching these over cocky women get their asses beat.. when you can match a man in Talent speed and game attractiveness we'll talk..
    Until then just be happy being a US champion women's soccer team. Now get back in the kitchen and make me some bacon and eggs.🙄

    The women need to remember that they played in the "FIFA Women's World Cup", and not the USWNT cup... it's a world game and the viewership is the entire world, not just the USA. Now compare the mens vs the women, and compare viewers when African, Asian, and South American nations play. It's great when ratings and sold out stadiums happen when the USA play, but what about when less than 10,000 people show up to watch Sweden (top 5 team) vs Thailand.

    This whole argument is so disingenuous... world cup revenue and ratings from the united states is a needle in a haystack compared to the rest of the world. According to Forbes, the Men's World Cup in Russia generated over 5 billion in worldwide revenue, while the Women's World Cup cycle 2019-2022 is estimated at 131 million in worldwide revenue. Prize money, for women, as a proportion of total revenue is actually more than 2x what it is for men.

    Liverpool vs united.
    The USMNT makes less revenue than the USWNT did, but it’s not the US Soccer association that’s giving all the men this money. It’s the World Cup
    In the last Woman’s World Cup, it generated nearly 73 million dollars. While the men’s made 4 BILLION DOLLARS. You got a piece just for being in the event. The women are squeeze money from something that doesn’t exist. They can’t give you a piece of money that they don’t make.

    Forget those who are saying men are paid "more" cuz they earn more, true but that's not the reason why they are paid "more". In fact MEN EARN A SMALLER PERCENTAGE THAN WOMEN in terms of their total earnings, meaning if we all wanted women to get paid as men do then women's soccer team would ear less than what's it's currently earning.

    This is bullocks as Womens team gets around 17% of the intake revenue they bring. Where as men get around only 7% of theirs. So really it's men who should by rights get the raise if we're being honest and NOT skewing facts. Sorry women but you already get a bigger percentage then men. You just don't bring in enough money. Because women's sports are boring.

    It only makes sense that men and women should get paid equally for the same work. When we compare men's and women's soccer, the work is definitely not the same. In women's soccer the game is very slow. Women players tend to make way too many simple mistakes that a typical soccer fan cannot stand watching. There is a significant difference between men and women soccer players in terms of speed, strength, athleticism, and technical skills. The difference is so large that I don't think US women's national soccer team can beat any of the top 50 U-17 male national teams in the world.
    That is why the market for women's soccer is almost nothing compared to the market for men's soccer. What women/men soccer players get paid is proportional to the revenues generated in their respective markets.

    If women soccer player gets paid as high as men soccer players, all those women soccer cubs will go bankrupt within a couple of months. Despite this, let's say somehow women soccer players managed to get paid as high as men soccer players. What is next then? Basketball? Ice hockey? Baseball?

    The problem here is that the women's world cup barely generates the views and revenue than the men's world cup. The sponsorships, FIFA marketing and fan base is where the money is generated. Comparing both world cups (2018, 2019) just in the US there was way more traffic of information for the men's world cup (despite the US men's team not qualifying). I would like for the women's game to get more recognition, but why all of a sudden care about equal pay when the average American barely watches their domestic leagues. If some MLS teams struggle to get enough people to watch the games, the NWSL struggles way more. People need to stop complaining about equal pay when these "fans" only seem to care about the women's game every 4 years during a world cup. I want the women to get a higher pay, because let's be honest, the men's team isn't worth sh*t. But the sponsorships, FIFA marketing, fan base, and worldwide views generate the men's higher salaries, it doesn't matter if here in the US women create more revenue for USSF. So the solution to this gender gap is to get more people to watch the female sport here and abroad and make it entertaining to watch. The more views the women's team gets, the higher their salaries will get. It's basic economics.

    It's the "13-0" Tweet by Sen. Gillibrand that poignantly spells out the discrepancy in play between the men and woman. Anyone who follows soccer knows that such an outcome would be a complete outlier in men's World Cup play. Thailand was such an underdeveloped team as they should NOT have qualified for the WC. But, when you take into consideration that women's soccer is VASTLY unpopular, comparative to men's, and that the Thai team was in the competition due to a lack of qualified women's teams on the international stage, its easy to conclude that our US women's success are leveraged on the fact the women aren't sporting, worldwide. The disparity in WC revenue is ALL one needs to look at when comparing men to women in international soccer. I believe it's about 70 million for women to 4 - 5 billion for men. THIS IS THE REASON FOR PAY DISCREPANCY, AS WELL AS THE GAP IN SUCCESSES BETWEEN USMNT AND USWNT.
    Brazil is arguably the greatest country in soccer. The men DOMINATE in international play, where the women languish. It's a catholic country with stark contrast in culture for women's sports. The same can be said for a vast majority of the world's teams. If you notice, the Women's WC is usually a contest between the US and Western Europe.
    Chris Cillizza (sp) is reporting on something he knows very little about. It's probably why he can only juggle a ball 3 times. Good day.

    You failed to mention this major point - "The USSF sells broadcast and sponsorship rights for the men’s and women’s teams together, and as a result, it can be difficult to determine the exact broadcast value of the two teams." CNN - when you can't get a job at mcdonalds.

    #Sidebar, this is bullshit. There is an earnings gap. What are these "similar" positions? I am a Product Manager, but I have a Product Analyst who is a woman. She makes significantly less than me. Is that discrimination?

    Women's sports don't bring in the viewers/revenue that Men's do. They aren't being paid for their record. This whole debate is absurd.

    Disappointed that CNN doesn't actually do research here. The "Point" he makes at the end are only for ticket sales. This is A point, but only a portion of revenue generated. Why not actually review the data and give facts? The 38% number is also from 3-4 years ago. It's closer to 89% now. Still a problem, but citing 38% is dishonest.
