Shocked we have gone this long without a thread. Cheerleaders for three NFL teams--Oakland, Cincinnati and Buffalo--are suing those teams. http://money.cnn.com/2014/04/28/news/cheerleader-wage-lawsuits/ Apparently though only Seattle pays cheerleaders a good amount of money. Cheerleaders are big part of the promotion of these teams. They are very visible to the public and perform at many events to promote the team. it is almost unthinkable that these extremely profitable teams cannot pay the cheerleaders more.
