Over the past two weeks, the USA women’s hockey team has been fighting to close the wage gap between themselves and the men players. Members of the USA olympic mens hockey team are paid a much greater amount then the women’s team. A boycott was planned by the women’s team for the upcoming world championships if a solution was not come to. However, a historic deal was agreed to last night (March 28th), making huge progress to closing the wage gap between olympic men and women teams. The following video goes into more details about the deal.
