USWNT loses wage discrimination lawsuit to U.S. Soccer

On Friday, a judge ruled against the United States women’s soccer team in its lawsuit against U.S. Soccer for wage discrimination. The ruling states that the women’s team has been paid more—both in totality and on a per-game basis—than the men’s team.

In addition to the judgment on wage discrimination, the court found insufficient evidence for discrimination with regards to the women’s team’s playing conditions. The women’s team had argued that its disproportionate number of games played on artificial turf was pretext for unlawful discrimination.
