CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Myles Garrett is weighing in on the fight for equal pay for all athletes, regardless of gender.
The star athlete for the Cleveland Browns shared his thoughts in a Twitter thread on Tuesday afternoon.
Garrett’s call for equality comes as the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team topped Thailand 13-0 in the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
The team broke numerous records during their dominant performance.
Garrett joined fans, politicians, and other athletes in the campaigned for pay increases benefiting females.
Women make 38 cents to the dollar compared to what men make playing soccer. The U.S. men’s team has never won a major tournament, while the women’s team holds three World Cup championships and four Olympic gold medals.
More than two dozen members of the women’s national team filed a lawsuit in May accusing U.S. Soccer of “institutionalized gender discrimination.”
