Not even a World Cup trophy can earn the U.S. women's soccer team the pay they say they deserve.
Five members of the U.S. women's soccer team are filing a wage-discrimination complaint against U.S. soccer seeking equal pay as their male counterparts.
"We continue to be told we should be grateful just to have the opportunity to play professional soccer and get paid for it. In this day and age, it's about equality. It's about equal rights. It's about equal pay," goalkeeper Hope Solo said.
