That is SO last week

Last week, five members of the U.S. Women’s Soccer team took the unprecedented step of filing a charge of discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission over their pay.  The players argue that despite generating over $20 million more in revenue than their male counterparts, female players are paid “thousands of dollars less than the men at nearly every level of competition[.]”  When asked about the claims, former EEOC Chair Ida Castro stated, “[I]t will be difficult for the employer to justify the differential in pay.”
