Five U.S. Women's Soccer Players File Complaint with EEOC for Equal Pay

You can read the gist of it here 

Their union is negotiating with USA Soccer for more money.  Right now, they are paid one-fourth of what the members of the men's team are.  They generate comparable revenues and have been more successful.  Tactically, the five biggest names are the complainants -- Lloyd, Morgan, Rapinoe, Sauerbrun and Solo.  These are not marginal players.  These are not players the team can do without.

It also is arguable that several of these players have much more significant name recognition than any member of the U.S. men's team, or at least those not named Dempsey and Howard. 

It will be interesting to see how this plays out.  The bet here is that the parties will resolve this before the EEOC has a chance to weigh in.
