We all know that the college sports brings humongous amount of money to the schools, and it’s mostly the players of the sports that are squeezing the money into the organization. People have always wanted the players to be considered employees, so the players can be getting paid due to the amount the schools are making. Schools have also opposed that the players get their share by not paying tuition, dorm fees and feeding. Even when most college student don’t make it to pro, some business and large organization do hire them as long as they have a sport played in college on their resume. There are so many opportunities laid out there for college students, that’s why I think there shouldn’t get paid. The chances out there getting a job for a college student with a business degree and any kind of sport in which they participated on their resume, is better than that of a college student with just a business degree. It’s just obvious, because you know who was more active during their college life. For example, the Enterprise car renting organization do hire a lot of college students. I know this because I’ve seen the ad come on so many times on television.
