One of the biggest ongoing controversies is the salary between the NBA and WNBA players. The argument is that female players should get paid what male players get.
Well, for the first time in WNBA history, all WNBA athletes will receive six-figure salaries and star athletes can receive up to half a million dollars in compensation packages, under the historic deal. Including paid maternity leave.
Benefits also cover adoption, surrogacy, and fertility/infertility treatment costs. players with children will also receive family housing and workplace accommodations to allow them to nurse their babies.
This is a big step from their previous salary. Players will not be paid like Lebron James or Stephen Curry but they will have the potential to be.
