All you need to know about the U.S. Women’s Soccer players’ wage-discrimination battle

USWNT Celebrates.jpgLast week, five players on the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team filed a Charge of Discrimination with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against the U.S. Soccer Federation. The women claim that they paid up to four times less than their male counterparts for doing basically the same job.

A reader of this blog with whom I am connected on LinkedIn — if you and I aren’t connected there yet, what are you waiting for? — asked me to do a post about this discrimination claim. Right before I put fingers to keyboard, I noticed in my RSS feed that Dan Schwartz had already blogged about this at his Connecticut Employment Law Blog.

Dan’s dynamic post is a great mix of news and analysis. And I have nothing to add…other than this link to the Telemundo call of  Carli Lloyd’s incredible gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooolazo from midfield in the 2015 World Cup final.
