Lost in hype over activist American women soccer players on the National team ranting about the pay-inequality between men’s and women’s soccer is the fact they’re wrong.
Pay for pro soccer players is based on market revenue generated.
Latest comparisons indicate women’s soccer generated $77 million in revenue on an annual basis…men’s soccer generated $4 billion during that same period of time.
As a percentage of the total market revenue each venue brought in, women received 13% pay of their generated revenue…but men only received 9% of their revenue.
Percentage-wise of revenue generated, women earned more. Dollar-wise, men earned more. But that can’t be blamed on unfairness…unless they’re vilifying populace interest.
It’s pretty obvious that the problem isn’t pay-inequality…it’s MARKET inequality.
Men’s soccer generates more revenue based on greater interest level.
How is that AMERICA’S FAULT?
Doesn’t take a genius to see their ‘pay-inequality’ rant is being deceitfully manipulated.
But, no worries, Megan Rapinoe…the Left still loves you for your anti-American deceit.
