Student Athletes Working for Free Joshua Bergen

The NCAA has implemented rules to keep schools from paying players, but this can make college life hard for student athletes.

Student athletes deserve to be paid because they are unable to have a job while on scholarship.

Student athletics should be paid since they put in long hours working to better themselves in their sport.

Student athletes should not have to worry about finances while at school and be able to only focus on their athletics and academics.

When student athletes are not practicing or playing, they are working to keep their grades up and keep their athletic scholarship.

If NCAA affiliated schools pay their athletes, students would be able to pay for more of their schooling that is not covered by their scholarships.
