Jets Cheerleader Brings Minimum Wage Claim

It appears the Jets do not pay their cheerleaders in compliance with minimum wage laws:

"A former New York Jets cheerleader, alleging pay she received amounted to less than minimum wage and that her out-of-pocket expenses included $45 weekly for hair straightening required by the team, has filed a class action lawsuit against the team.

. . .

She says she was paid $150 per game – but not for others hours of required work – as a member of the New York Jets Flight Crew during the 2012 season. The suit is similar to others filed by cheerleaders against the Oakland Raiders, Cincinnati Bengals and Buffalo Bills." (link)

The Jets cheerleader alleges she was paid only $3.77 an hour for her work.
