U.S. Women Soccer Team Denied the Right To Srike

US Women's Team
Because the United States Women's National Team in soccer brings in less revenue, provide low quality plays and competes in a limited league, they don't deserved to be paid the same way as the Men's Soccer Team.

According to the Wall Street Journal, there was US$ 17 million in sponsor revenue for 2015 women's World Cup compared to US$ 529 million for the 2014 men's tournament. America's winning women earned a larger share, about 11 percent, of the money their tournament made from sponsors than the victorious German team, who got just 6.6 percent of the sponsor revenue from last year's men's World Cup as their prize.

This is also the reason why a federal judge ruled the world champion U.S. women's soccer team does not have the right to strike to seek improved conditions and wages before the Summer Olympics, seeming to end the prospect of an unprecedented disruption by one of the most successful American national teams.

The U.S. Soccer Federation warned a strike could have forced the women's team, which is seeking its fourth straight Olympic gold medal in Brazil, to withdraw from the Games and said that would have damaged American soccer as a whole.
