So it all started this year in July, the U.S. women’s soccer team won their second World Cup. Most fans would cheer “USA!, USA!” but instead, they chanted “Equal pay!, Equal pay!” And that raised a question, why do women athletes get paid less than men athletes? Some might say the pay gap “78 cents to a dollar.” But we all know that’s just not true. I say there’s a fair and equal reason for this.
So what do I think? What’s my magical answer? Simple! So when I did research on this matter, I found out that 1 billion people watched the women’s World Cup. Now you’re wondering “How does this have to do with them getting paid less?” Like I said before, Simple! So I research how many people watched the men’s World Cup. And guess what? 3.3 billion people watched it. Meaning it would make more money than the women’s World Cup. And if they have more money, they pay more! See, I told you it was a simple answer!
What Others Think
Some think I’m full of baloney. But trust me, I’m right! There’s no special little pay gap. Now that’s baloney! They want women in girls to buy into this “Not Equal” thing. “Earlier this semester, I spoke to a group of 70 undergraduate women at Harvard, where I am spending the semester. I asked this group of college women if they believed they would get paid 78 cents on the dollar compared to men just because they were women. A majority of the women raised their hands.” says Karin Agness Lips, a writer on Forbes and college student. It’s just a myth! It’s all been debunked, even by a women’s only college! It’s just a myth by the media like CNN!
So, what have we learned here? Don’t trust everything the media says, women athletes are paid less for a reason, and global warming is pretty sketchy. Wait, that last one is for later. Thank you for reading! I hope you enjoyed!
