Demand that college athletes begin to be payed
I am creating a petition for the NCAA which as most you know is the National Collegiate Athletic Association. The NCAA is responsible for taking care of all the college athletes at the Division 1,2, and 3 levels. To whom I'm writing to is the employees of the NCAA. The reason for me creating this petition is to help the college athletes in America who struggle financially every day. Student-athletes all over America struggle just to get by with no money and this needs to change.
Student athletes at the D1 level, especially football players, devote a majority of their day to school and the sport they play. Even though they may earn a scholarship that pays for all or most of their schooling, this does not pay for the food they need to eat. The NCAA is a billion dollar association and they choose not to compensate their athletes with a little money. The athletes are the ones bringing all the money to the schools and NCAA, but they are not rewarded for it. This problem is very large around the nation, for there are 100s of schools with many sports at each school, but this problem could be fixed with a easy choice of the NCAA.
With the help from you by simply singing your signature, we could maybe help make a change for the struggling atheletes
