By now, it's been established several times over that NFL cheerleaders are treated terribly: on Monday, a former cheerleader from the Tampa Buccaneers filed a sued the team, claiming that she was paid less than two dollars an hour. This makes the Buccaneers the fifth NFL team to face a similar suit this year. Hooray for organized sports!
In the past year, cheerleaders for the Oakland Raiders, the Cincinnati Bengals, the New York Jets, the Buffalo Bills and, now, the Buccaneers have sued over their shitty, shitty wages. (The Raiderettes allege they were paid $5/hr; the Ben-Gals $2.85/hr; and the Flight Crew $3.77/hr. If I were them, I would demand extra for the emotional damage incurred by forced association with those terrible "feminized" team names.)
