WHAT IT IS
- Team USA Women’s Hockey was poised to boycott the upcoming IIHF Women’s World Championships in an effort to earn, what they consider, “livable wages”.
WHY IT MATTERS
There is a significant pay disparity between male and female professional athletes. In hockey, Team USA men’s players have day jobs making millions of dollars in the NHL while some women’s players have second and third jobs to supplement paltry NWHL salaries.
