I can sensationalize through headlines too!
A group of female employees that work for the Oakland Raiders make about $5 an hour. That is $3 under the minimum wage mandated by California. The U.S. Department of Labor under the Obama Administration gives this a thumbs up because it is seasonal work.
These female employees only make $1,250 a season while their male counter part (I assume male, read to the end) makes $23,000 a season. He makes more than 18 times more. The gals make less than 6 cents for every dollar he earns.
Who are these down trodden females?
Did you just suddenly discount their gripe? Don't. Time is money. Just because they are cheerleaders does not minimize their worth. They do train, practice, and are subject to fines like not having a proper tan color. Not the proper color? That's racist!
Who is the male counter part?
The team mascot. Honestly I don't know if the team mascot is a guy but the article [ here ] has a photo and it looks like that under the costume there is a guy. Maybe it is a bull dyke. I honestly don't know and don't care.
Let's face it, the cheerleaders are poorly paid. The fans need to do something about it, not the government.
So fans, what are you going to do?
