Rush was talking about the wage Gap talking point, referring to the World Cup. He gave stats on the last male and female World Cups. The last Women's World Cup took in 70 million dollars. The last men's World Cup was over 4 billion. So obviously they're going to get paid more
They did this in tennis, too. And now the female players get paid as much as the male players. The only problem is that the male players have to play best-of-five sets in the slams, and the women only best-of-three. So they're getting paid as much for doing half the work
And the women actually get paid a higher percentage of the earnings. They get 13% of the take, whereas the men get only 9%.
And I'll remind you that this women's national team got their asses handed to them by a group of 14 year old boys, 5-2
