Kick away unequal U.S. Soccer team pay: Darcy cartoon

The stretch of Broadway from the Battery to City Hall has long hosted parades for world leaders, veterans and hometown sports stars. Goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher held the World Cup trophy aloft.

The U.S. women won that tournament.

Team USA's second consecutive World Cup win, which puts it on par with Germany who won the tournament in 2003 and 2007, did not come easy.

A contract player on the USWNT will make a base salary with performance-based bonuses, while one on the USMNT earns only bonuses.

In the 28 years since that first World Cup win, the US women's team has been wildly successful, taking home four Women's World Cups in all, including the 2019 title captured on Sunday in a 2-0 victory over The Netherlands, four Olympic gold medals, and eight CONCACAF Gold Cups. On average, women in NY earn 89 cents per dollar earned by men, according to a state Department of Labor report released in April 2018 - the narrowest pay gap in any state, the report states. "It was like, this World Cup win is so much more than what was on the field".

The bill would withhold federal funds from efforts related to the United States' hosting of the 2026 World Cup until the U.S. Soccer Federation agrees to give its national women's and men's teams the same compensation. But if the US men had accomplished the same feat, each of them would have earned more than $1.1 million.

"The U.S. Women's National Team is an inspiration", Collins said. But if they'd been eligible for the same bonuses as the US men, they'd have raked in $550,000.

Now, it's the women of 2019's turn. For despite being ranked the first in the world, the female soccer players get paid far less than their male counterparts, who are now ranked 30th.

Both sides are to continue the talks as appropriate, the official said, without offering more details on the next steps. He added, "There was headway last winter and spring, then it stopped".

She also reiterated that she would not be going to the White House, saying on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360: "I would not go and every teammate that I've talked to explicitly about it would not go".

But just as she did while in France over the last month during the Women's World Cup games, Rapinoe stood defiantly with her hands clasped behind her back and a wide smirk across her face. "By the way, they play it better", Cuomo said during a press conference.

Women's rights advocates say the bills will contribute to furthering the pay equity cause. "Why not in the sports arena, as well?" "Without the work done by the 1999 Women's World Cup Team, victory in 2019 simply wouldn't have been possible". "NY is going to lead the way and we say to the U.S. Soccer League, and we say to Federation Internationale de Football Association, if you don't pay women what you pay men then you have no business in the state of NY".

The women's earning power also extends to merchandise. He said women's soccer players should be paid the same as male players. If she sees Morgan in the parade, she said, "I'm gonna scream my head off and try to get a hug".

On Sunday, the day of the USA women's national team's victory, a team spokeswoman released a statement that read: "At this moment of tremendous pride for America, the sad equation remains all too clear, and Americans won't stand for it anymore". "They probably look at the United States and say, 'Well, you're riding high". "You need to do better for everyone".

Upon winning their 4th World Cup title Sunday over Netherlands, 2-0, women's team members will receive a maximum of $200,000 each. "Let's act so we can help all women achieve equality".

The U.S. Soccer Federation wrote in a court filing that the two groups are paid differently due to differences in their collective-bargaining agreements. Rapinoe has said she wouldn't be going to the White House. "At this moment, they are cultural icons and should be paid as such".
