Student athletes should get paid. They are getting a full ride scholarship only to play for their school. This means they’re not only dedicated to their studies but even more to their sport they came to play for. That means they have no time to get a job so they should at least be getting paid to play as well so they can at least have some money to buy necessities. Therefore student athletes should get paid.

I believe college athlete students should get paid for the work and strength to bring this college a name. The California Fair Play Act is a great idea! This can benefit players who struggle financially to stay in school or just to help them out. The NCCA makes millions of dollars probably close to a billion dollars on students who get not one cent. These athletes are hardworking and majority of them are people of color and for that they deserve everything that is offered to them. Matter of fact this law should have been applied to people because now people are frustrated that they don’t get nothing but only the new generation. It’s great that this law is being in place but it should have been taken place.

Student athletes should get paid because they bring in revenue. According to the article “ Free labor from college athletes may soon come to an end” by Alexis, it says how the coaches and colleges make profit of the athletes and not even the athletes can get any of the money. This is unfair because the athletes put all their energy and effort into playing, so they should at least get some money.

I think college athletes shouldn’t get paid. Why well they are getting a scholarship that lets them do what they want. Well college athletes if they play well they can actually be drafted to the NFL instead of playing college football for 4 years straight. Also college football don’t pay their athletes.

College athletes should get paid for there hard work and determination in college sports. Other people like the head of Big Ten Conference and NCAA are getting paid because of athletes performing sports, but are not the one getting paid.

I believe college athletes should get paid because they work hard to bring in the respect to a college.The NCAA have generated close to a billion dollars while student athletes get not even a cent. The NCAA have made earning money off of there picture or jerseys because of the NCAA have made them not be able to receive any sponsorship. Colleges also use great athletes to bring i'm more money for the colleges. I believe its great that the fair play act is gonna be passed out soon because i believe athletes names should be able to receive money off of there names.

Student athletes should get paid. Student athletes should get paid because they deserve to get some of the profit that other people get through them. Other people get paid for everything they do, also in college students need lots of money to pay for all the college expenses. In the article it says “it’s also about all the college athletes who don’t make it to the pros but who could still make some money while they’re in school.” This quote shows that not everyone makes it pro, which is when they’d actually make money off of what they do in the sport but not many people make it there so it’d only be fair for them to make money even if not making it pro. This also shows that college student athletes could make money while doing what they love and being in school so they could focus on school without having to worry about needing money for expenses.

Student athletes should get paid. They should get paid because they are the ones that’s do all the work, but don’t make a cent. In the article it says “the only ones who aren’t making money are athletes themselves.” This quote shows that college athletes don’t get paid anything for the time and energy they consume in playing a sport. Everyone else profits off of them but they themselves don’t make anything when in reality everyone else doesn’t do anything, the athletes do all the work.

I think student athletes should get paid. Why well they mostly do the work. Athletes dedicate all their time on playing ball on college, but not getting paid by doing it
