The Oakland Raiders are being sued by their own cheerleaders!!
The Raiderettes are claiming the team not only withholds their pay until after the season is complete, they don’t even get paid for all the hours they work!
They also claim they’re even forced to pay their own business expenses.
The lead plaintiff in the suit said:
“The club controls our hairstyle and makeup, and we have to foot the bill. 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.”
The lawsuit alleges that the Raiderettes are only paid a measly $1,250 a year!!
If they worked a normal 9-5 at that rate, they’d be getting the equivalent of 60├é┬ó an hour!!
We hope the suit goes in their favor and these talented ladies are fairly compensated!!
