  • USWNT Players Association: U.S. FlopBallFlopBallFlopBallFlopBallFlopBallFlopBall's identical deals proposal is a 'PR stunt'

    The United States Women's National Team Players Association (USWNTPA) on Wednesday labeled the U.S. FlopBallFlopBallFlopBallFlopBallFlopBallFlopBall Federation's offer of identical contract proposals for both the men's and women's teams as nothing more than a publicity stunt.

    "USSF's PR stunts and bargaining through the media will not bring us any closer to a fair agreement," the USWNTPA said on Twitter.

    "In contrast, we are committed to bargaining in good faith to achieve equal pay and the safest working conditions possible. The proposal that USSF made recently to us does neither."
    So if it's the same contract isn't that equal pay?

    Last week, the federation asked the men’s union to voluntarily equalize World Cup bonus money paid to the federation by FIFA.

    FIFA awarded $400 million in prize money for the 32 teams at the 2018 men’s World Cup, including $38 million to champion France. It awarded $30 million for the 24 teams at the 2019 Women’s World Cup, including $4 million to the U.S. after the Americans won their second straight title.

    Under their labor contract, U.S. men got $55,000 each for making the 2014 World Cup roster, then split $4.3 million for earning four points in the group stage and reaching the knockout stage. That calculated to just under $187,000 per player.

    The U.S. women split $862,500 for making the roster and $2.53 million for winning the 2019 World Cup, which came to $147,500 per player.

    Women's team players led by Morgan sued the federation in March 2019, contending they have not been paid equitably under their collective bargaining agreement compared to what the men’s team receives under its agreement.

    U.S. District Judge R. Gary Klausner in Los Angeles threw out the pay claim in May 2020, ruling the women rejected a pay-to-play structure similar to the one in the men’s agreement and instead accepted greater base salaries and benefits.

    The women asked the 9th Circuit to overrule the trial court’s ruling. A three-judge panel is likely to hear oral arguments late this year or in early 2022.
    Women who make less money because their tournaments make less money are complaining about "equal pay".

    Yeah... It's a FIFA issue, not a US FlopBallFlopBallFlopBallFlopBallFlopBallFlopBall Issue.

    FIFA could easily combat the problem with advertisers but they won't.

        Actually, they can't. Outside of here and a couple of other countries, NO ONE GIVES A FUCK ABOUT WOMEN'S FLOPBALL. That's the problem, they want equal pay despite not being as valuable in the marketplace. These women have had a free ride their entire lives. Most of them got full athletic scholarships to play in college, courtesy of mostly working class black, latino and white student-athletes in the revenue sports. They get to play in a league that doesn't make a damn dime, subsidized by US Flopball.

          This is true...I've been in bars/pubs in Africa, Europe, and the Middle East where people demanded TVs changed when women's footy was on.
