The U.S. men’s and women’s soccer teams reached an historic agreement with the U.S. Soccer Federation (USSF) today.
The agreement guarantees equal compensation, prize money & benefits between both teams. Until now, the men’s team was compensated at a much higher rate than the women’s team. The women won the last two World Cups, and four overall. The men have never won.
The new deal works both ways. While the women will now receive equal pay, the men’s team will now get benefits that only went to the women’s team, up until now. Childcare benefits, for example. This agreement is sure to reverberate around the world.
