There has been debate over the past several months about the treatment of NFL cheerleaders. From the insane guidelines the woman are supposed to follow to their horrible pay. In June, two Raiderettes attempted to sue the NFL for fair wages. In response to this the NFL said that they are "immune from all state Labor Code provisions." It is being argued that their complaint pertains solely to the Raiders and not the NFL as a whole.
For the first time this season the Raiders will be offering their cheerleaders $9 an hour (CA state min. wage) as opposed to their previous wage of $125 per game and no pay for any other required obligations.
