Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Why college athletes should be paid 1 On average, college students train up to 43 hours a week,which is 3 hours longer than the typical American work week. 2 The NCAA requires student athletes to miss classes to attend NCAA tournaments that are being televised and bringing in revenue. Most scholarships do not cover all tuition fees. So the athletesare having to still pay for school, yet have no time for a job.. The NCAA is making millions of dollars fromthese student athletes, yet they are getting noneof it. 3 You may say that these athletes are being "paid" in scholarshipmoney, but many athletes on scholarship come from a poor family. They cannot help provide for their family or for themselves with scholarship money. The college athletes have no time to worka job outside of school and athletics. 4 NCAA coaches earn bonusesif their school does well, makesit to a playoff, or wins a championship. That bonusis on top of the minimum salary of $100,000. The student athletes are the reason for the coaches bonus, but they athlete doesnot get any bonus.. 5 Payment to college athletes would get rid of all the illegal ways that student athletes try to earn money. There have been several incidents of college athletes either selling autographs, or selling personal memorabiliafor some money they needed. Punishments includeanything from not being allowed to play the firsthalf of a game, all the way to having to sit all season. Sources Edelman, Marc. "Athletes are employees." Forbes. 01 Jan. 2014.
