USA Hockey Negotiations Continue
The US Women's National Team recently announced their boycott of the upcoming World Championships in order to put pressure on USA Hockey to treat their players better. For far too long, women haven't been getting the compensation they deserve for the amount of work they put in.
Players at the highest level of the sport have to have other jobs on the side because even if they win a gold medal in an Olympic year, the bonuses and regular compensation they receive is not enough to survive on. These women aren't asking for millions, just to receive what is fair. Negotations are going well, but USA Hockey is also contacting other players in order to put a team together for the World Championships. This could be a major turning point in women's hockey.
