the NCAA is too weak to handle any type of payment rule
if they agree students athletes should get the minimum wage/hour of work some states have a higher minimum wage and students will be attracted to those schools... same with taxes
what happens when a school can't pay the amount since most athletic departments already lose money? will the NCAA cover it?
then there's gender equality that was mentioned. women's sports generate about 5-10% the income of an athletic department yet they are 40% of the student athlete body.
