Good at Soccer — Not Good at Math — Or Patriotism

For weeks and weeks the media has reported the Women’s National Team made less than the men’s team.
It made headlines.
The women actually sued to get equal pay!

And Elizabeth Warren tweeted even about it.

On Monday US Soccer President Carlos Cordeiro tweeted out a letter that claims the Women Players have been making more than the men from 2010 to 2018.

 

They already make more money than the men.

NBC Sports reported:

U.S. Soccer says the players on the World Cup champion women’s national team were paid more than their male counterparts from 2010 through 2018.

According to a letter released Monday by U.S. Soccer President Carlos Cordeiro, the federation has paid out $34.1 million in salary and game bonuses to the women as opposed to $26.4 million paid to the men. Those figures do not include benefits received only by the women, like health care.
