Sports have and always will be important to Americans. There has always been a huge debate on whether collegiate athletes should be paid or not. College athletes should be paid off the position they play and their work ethic. People tend to build up a hard work ethic expecting to be rewarded in the end. For athletes, that may mean the National Football League (NFL) or National Basketball Association (NBA), but why can’t they be rewarded for their hard work while in college? If professional athletes are worth millions and get a salary, college athletes should be paid as well.
