“Should College Athletes Be Paid.” Scholastic News, vol. 77, no. 16, 2018, p. 7. DCCCD Libraries,
In this article they debate whether college athletes get paid. They go into details covering ticket and merchandise sales. They cover the benefits a college athlete gets from school, such as the $250,000 in school value. They compare being a college athlete to working a full-time job, sometimes players putting in 40 to 60 hours a week going to practice. With the colleges sports being a billion-dollar industry, some argue in the article, that yes college athletes should get payed. Some argue that a free tuitions, free meals, and other benefits is enough, and they shouldn’t get payed.
The reason I think this article is going to be useful is because it takes into consideration both sides of the argument. The article is written in a debate type style, this is a perfect article because I believe you can build a good counterargument no matter which side you choose to argue.
