"There is no rationale why women should not get paid what men get paid", Cuomo said, per WPIX. In recent decades, the honor was been reserved for championship teams, including the New York Yankees and New York Giants. During his remarks on the Senate floor on Monday, Schumer extended the invitation and called for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to put the Equal Pay Amendment, which the House has passed, on the floor of the Senate. "We literally just got off a plane a couple of hours ago, got hair and makeup in the plane, and we look pretty fabulous, I think", she admitted.

The Americans finally got the break they had been seeking in the 61st minute, when United States co-captain Alex Morgan was fouled in the penalty box by Dutch defender Stefanie van der Gragt.

The U.S. men's team failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, held in Russian Federation, and will attempt to make the field for the 2022 tournament, to be held in Qatar. Also, the women's national team made revenue in 2016 where the men made a net loss.

But the parade in New York's financial district was more than a tribute to a championship team, which has been involved in a well-publicized fight for equal pay with the US men's national team. Just like so many other Americans do when they come of age, ticker-tape parades even got their own auto.

In addition to bringing in more World titles than the men, for the past three years, the USA women's soccer team has brought in more revenue at $50.8 million compared to $49.9 million.

FOX4 will live stream the parade in the video player above.

The issue regarding equal pay for the USWNT remains a complex one.

During the parade-side bill signing, Cuomo said "there is no rationale why women should not get paid what men get paid".

"Everyone that I've talked to, yeah", she said. The soccer federation and the plaintiffs tentatively agreed last month to mediation, which is expected to begin now that the World Cup is over.

Pay-gap conversations are continuing to progress just days after the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup ended, with U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) becoming the latest to offer a solution to the controversy.

"We cheered for them on the field, and we are with them, too for equality off the field", McCray said during her speech at the City Hall ceremony after the parade. "You're tough. You don't need to do as much because your women's game is already there'".

A bipartisan resolution was introduced Wednesday by U.S. Sen.

Mr Obama joined in the celebrations and posted a photo of himself with a custom jersey, congratulating and thanking "America's best team" for being a strong inspiration for everyone across the country.

The bill was inspired by the lawsuit brought by 28 members of the USWNT in March against the US Soccer Federation, according to Feinstein's office.
