3:44 am
how are they paid differently? >> there's two different pay structures. the men get paid per game. whether they win or lose, they get paid. the women are on a salary-based contract. >> reporter: it's a pay structure the women themselves wanted and agreed to in 2005 and again in 2013. a consistent salary of up to $72,000 a year and bonuses for wins of $1,350. they also get health insurance and maternity leave. the men enjoy no guaranteed salary and fewer personal benefits. but they can make as much as $17,625 for a win. we wanted to compare two of the top players. salaries vary, but in 2015 hope

3:46 am
>> we have to win and perform to even make 1,350. >> you're professional women. you signed this deal. do you look back and say why did i agree to that deal? or -- >> a little bit. but it's also when it comes down to it, we just kind of had to be like oh, you're just going to say no to everything we're putting on the table. we didn't know how to fight and in which ways we could fight. >> do you think you should be paid more than the men's team? >> yeah, absolutely. >> why? >> we win. we're successful. we should get what we deserve. >> reporter: last year the top female players did make more money from u.s. soccer than the men's team. but their lawyer, rich nichols, says that's only because they played and won more games than the men. >> when you subtract the bonus money that these women made in 2015, they're probably making $70,000 to $80,000 apiece. >> you mean had they not been
3:47 am
made. >> that's right. >> reporter: despite being upset at last summer's olympics, the women are still number one in the world according to fifa. they say their fight is only with u.s. soccer, not with the u.s. men's team, who are ranked a respectable if unspectacular 24th in the world. >> this team taught all america's children that playing like a girl means you're a bad-ass. >> reporter: on stage at the white house in october 2015, they were national heroes celebrating their latest world cup win. back on the job, they were disgruntled workers whose negotiations with u.s. soccer had ground to a halt and grown increasingly bitter. the women decided to change tactics. enter the federal agency known as the eeoc, or the equal employment opportunity commission. why file this suit with the
3:48 am
>> we wanted to put pressure on them, and so with the eeoc complaint it seemed like a no-brainer for us. >> reporter: their complaint accuses u.s. soccer of violating the equal pay act and title vii which protects employees against discrimination based on sex. the commission has the power to award damages, issue the right for workers to sue or do nothing at all. >> you can see the full report on our website, the overnight news will be right
