Jaliyah Chase Barton started this petition to The People and

Women get paid a lot less when it comes to sports. There is multiple reasons for this happening as they have less views and sponsors then the boys. But either way I feel like they should have a fair pay. A lot of people say its because the girls don't play as good as the guys or the guys are more entertaining but its mostly because they just think the boys play better overall. lets take the WNBA compared to the NBA for example the WNBA's total revenue in 2017 was about $60 million and about $20 million went to its players. As of the NBA in the same year they had a total revenue of $8.76 billion and 4.3 billion went to its players. The difference between the wage gap is insane. The total wage gap between the WNBA and NBA reached $7.32 million in the 2019-2020 season. The average salary each WNBA player makes is $80,000 while NBA players make $7.4 million. I care about this topic because it affects every young girl who dreams of growing up and playing basketball but then realizes that the girls on the WNBA do not get payed enough for all of the hard work they put in and all the things they do . They get paid on average 80 thousand  dollars but they travel all around the US away from their families to do something they are good at and love to do. In conclusion I made this petition to see how many people really support all of the girls on the Womens sport teams and realize they need an equal pay to the guys. Please Sign this petition to support the cause.
