Cheerleaders file suit against Raiders



According to the filing, Raiders cheerleaders are paid $1,250 per season, which amounts to less than $5 per hour for the time they spend rehearsing, performing and appearing at events for which they are not compensated.

Lacy T., identified only by her first name, in accordance with Raiderettes policy for security reasons, was quoted by the Mercury news.

"The club controls our hairstyle and makeup, and we have to foot the bill," she said. "We also have to pay the costs for traveling to all kinds of events, including photo shoots ... I love the Raiders and I love being a Raiderette, but someone has to stand up for all of the women of the NFL who work so hard for the fans and the teams."

Vinick said the Raiders owe thousands of dollars in unpaid wages to women who worked as Raiderettes in previous seasons, while owing thousands of dollars in penalties to the women who worked this season.

"I have never seen an employment contract with so many illegal provisions," Vinick told the paper.

The team had no comment on the lawsuit.

Yeah thought I was going to see some cheering. :-(

Not surprised about the wage though. There are lots of wannabees who would do it for free.
