Let to the rapper alone, the women’s national team needs equal or even more salaries than the men’s team because they (women) clearly perform better in every competition than the men.
Snoop said “It’s about time Team USA women’s soccer team get paid like the men because our champions are getting the shaft.”
After Megan Rapinoe, Alex Morgan and the rest of the U.S. Women’s National Team beat up the Netherlands to win their 4th World Cup, Snoop shared his rage concerning how they are underpaid.
According to reports, the U.S. women’s soccer players only made $90,000 per player in bonus money for reaching the quarterfinals while the men would have made $500,000 for reaching the same stage.
After winning the whole tournament, the U.S. women’s team reportedly walked away with $260,000 per player while the men would have banked $1.1 million each.
The 47-year old rapper was furious with the pay gap, claiming that, they (the US women team) are the best in the world at what they do while the men’s team didn’t even qualify for the World Cup in 2018.
“The men from the U.S. soccer team, they haven’t ever won anything, will never ever win anything. can’t get out the first round. Man, pay the ladies!” Snoop said.
