The latest advertisement from Subway features none other than U.S.
Women’s soccer star, Megan Rapinoe. During the commercial, the World
Cup winner encourages a man to ditch his original plan to order
burritos for lunch and instead get a “freshly made Footlong from
Subway.”

In addition to her soccer-related prowess and apparent fandom of Subway
sandwiches, Rapinoe is also an outspoken advocate for gender equality
and so-called “equal pay.”

“Rapinoe says that when it comes to pay equity, the U.S. is due for a
‘paradigm shift’ in how we understand the value and potential of
women,” reported NPR.

“Men are so often paid and compensated on the potential that they show,
not necessarily what they’ve done,” Rapinoe said, according to the
outlet. “And women are so often paid on what they’ve actually done —
which normally I would say, we outperform what our contract was.”

With this in mind, The Daily Wire reached out to Subway regarding
Rapinoe’s partnership and asked the following questions.

1) How much was she paid for her appearance?

2) How much were the other actors in her commercial paid?

At the time of writing, Subway had not responded. However, it seems
reasonable to assume that Rapinoe — as the “star” of the commercial —
was paid more than the extras who played “man with burger,” “man with
phone,” or “man next to man with phone.”



And if this is the case, shouldn’t Megan Rapinoe be outraged by such
unequal pay?

This is the same Rapinoe, after all, who appeared at the White House in
March to speak out against alleged pay discrimination between women and
men, suggesting that she should be paid the same as male soccer players
for doing “the same job.”

“I’ve been disrespected and dismissed because I am a woman. I’ve been
told that I don’t deserve any more than less because I am a woman,”
Rapinoe added.

Megan Rapinoe: "I've been devalued, I've been disrespected
and dismissed because I am a woman. I've been told that I
don't deserve any more than less because I am a woman. Despite
all the wins, I'm still paid less than men who do the same
job that I do." https://t.co/canJYaCV9s

Now, Rapinoe would likely argue that she, and not the extras, bring the
most value to Subway’s commercial campaign. And she would be right,
thereby contradicting the entire premise of her flawed campaign for
“equal pay.”

As NBA star Draymond Green noted in April, “if you don’t bring in the
revenue, we can’t up your pay.”

Megan Rapinoe is — we can only assume — paid more than lesser-known
actors in her latest commercial because her “public status” is viewed
as an opportunity for profit by Subway. For Subway, Rapinoe brings in
the revenue, earning her a significant share of their corresponding
expenditure.

The same is not true when it comes to U.S. soccer, hence why Rapinoe
and the other women’s players are paid “less” than their male
counterparts.

If Rapinoe disagrees, perhaps she should share her Subway paycheck with
“man with burger,” “man with phone,” or “man next to man with phone?”

As for soccer, if the women's team wants the same pay as men, they

Or maybe they should all just identify as men. Then they'll either be

Gradually women, people of color, and LGBTQs will appeal to the woke

Theory that they may become witnesses so cannot speak

During all those years of experimentation and research, I never once made a discovery. All my work was deductive, and the results I achieved were those of invention, pure and simple. I would construct a theory and work on its lines until I found it was untenable. Then it would be discarded at once and another theory evolved. This was the only possible way for me to work out the problem. … I speak without exaggeration when I say that I have constructed 3,000 different theories in connection with the electric light, each one of them reasonable and apparently likely to be true.--

Subway called me and said they were VERY worried about losing you as a
customer, and asked if you might reconsider your decision.

unequal pay?
This is the same Rapinoe, after all, who appeared at the White House in
March to speak out against alleged pay discrimination between women and
men, suggesting that she should be paid the same as male soccer players
for doing “the same job.”
“I’ve been disrespected and dismissed because I am a woman. I’ve been
told that I don’t deserve any more than less because I am a woman,”
Rapinoe added.
Megan Rapinoe: "I've been devalued, I've been disrespected
and dismissed because I am a woman. I've been told that I
don't deserve any more than less because I am a woman. Despite
all the wins, I'm still paid less than men who do the same
job that I do." https://t.co/canJYaCV9s

Now, Rapinoe would likely argue that she, and not the extras, bring the
most value to Subway’s commercial campaign. And she would be right,
thereby contradicting the entire premise of her flawed campaign for
“equal pay.”
As NBA star Draymond Green noted in April, “if you don’t bring in the
revenue, we can’t up your pay.”
Megan Rapinoe is — we can only assume — paid more than lesser-known
actors in her latest commercial because her “public status” is viewed
as an opportunity for profit by Subway. For Subway, Rapinoe brings in
the revenue, earning her a significant share of their corresponding
expenditure.
The same is not true when it comes to U.S. soccer, hence why Rapinoe
and the other women’s players are paid “less” than their male
counterparts.
If Rapinoe disagrees, perhaps she should share her Subway paycheck with
“man with burger,” “man with phone,” or “man next to man with phone?”
