The National Women’s Soccer League Players Association has dropped a new campaign.

The NWSLPA launched #NoMoreSideHustles on Thursday, a push for fair compensation.

“1/3 of all NWSLPA members make the League’s minimum salary of $22,000 per year. 75% make $31,000 or less, compared to the salary minimum of $58,710 in the WNBA,” the campaign’s website states.

DiDi Haracic, a goalkeeper for Gotham FC, endorsed the hashtag, revealing via Tweet that she holds multiple jobs.

“I work two jobs. All my days after practice are packed with trying to find new clients as well as going out to shoot photos for clients. I love what I do but you guys it’s exhausting.”

The new initiative comes as the NWSLPA continues negotiations with the league for a new collective bargaining agreement.
