Despite the WNBA’s annual financial losses, roughly $10 million annually, which are covered by the NBA, Vice President Kamala Harris has entered the discussion on WNBA salaries, advocating for ‘fair’ pay for female athletes. This comes amid heightened discourse following Caitlin Clark’s selection as the top pick in the WNBA draft.

“Women should be paid their fair share – whether they’re a scientist, construction worker, or WNBA all-star,” Harris wrote on X. 

“President Biden and I are committed to closing the gender wage gap and creating an economy where every American can thrive.”
