A full-ride scholarship at, for example, the University of Michigan is worth $67,000 a year. Not bad for part-time seasonal work.

The poor kid isn't generating revenue for others to take. The Amazon employee is in the same situation, how does that make it any better? Bad argument

If the NCAA does not want to pay players, they should, at very least be able to make money off their name, likeness and get endorsements.
