The United States women’s soccer players say they can’t reach an agreement with the US Soccer Federation for equal pay, now they say they are preparing to go to court.
Molly Levinson, a spokeswoman for the players says, they are “sorely disappointed in the federation’s determination to perpetuate fundamentally discriminatory workplace conditions and behavior.” Levinson says they are undaunted and will look forward to a jury trial. U.S. Soccer officials says they hoped to reach a resolution, but they accused the counsel for the players of “an aggressive and ultimately unproductive approach.” Federation President Carlos Cordeiro said in late July, the women’s team was paid more overall than the men’s team between 2010 and 2018. Both entities agreed to mediation after the women’s team claimed its’ fourth FIFA women’s world cup last month in France.
