Thu., Jan. 23, 2014

ALAMEDA, Calif. – The Oakland Raiders are being sued by current and former cheerleaders claiming wage theft and other unfair employment practices.

The lawsuit filed Wednesday in Alameda County Superior Court alleges that the organization withholds all pay from the Raiderettes until the end of the season, does not pay for all hours worked and forces the cheerleaders to pay many of their own business expenses.

According to the filing, Raiders cheerleaders are paid $1,250 a season. The team had no comment.
