Every believes that: Men’s sports make more money than women’s sports. It’s not unfair if men’s total compensation is higher because of that. If for US Soccer: MEN: $200 million revenue, $80 million compensation (40%) WOMEN: $20 million revenue, $8 million compensation (40%) $80 vs $8 is fair because everyone gets 40%. Paying the women’s team $80 million isn’t equity, it’s a handout. But if a women’s team COULD/DID generate $200 million in revenue, fair pay is giving them their $80 million. Giving them less than the same percentage as the men is not equitable, and discrimination based on gender. That’s the USWNT lawsuit.
