Student athletes need compensation

  • I think that students athletes should get paid for their hard work
  • They work hard and need money for families and rent 
  • The college sports are a multi-million dollar industry 

So why arent they getting paid?

The sports have enough money

why they are not getting paid

  • Most of them got a free ride scholarship to college 
  • They are there for education not money.
  • The sports claim they dont have enough money to pay athletes

The downside of not being paid

  • Some college athletes don't finish college because they don't have money
  • They have families to take care of but they have no money to do so
  • they can't get a job because of practice and games so they need money 
  • The athletes have necessitiesand with no money they cant get those
