Oakland Raiderettes to Be Paid $9 an Hour, Make Minimum Wage for 1st Time

NBC New York published Oakland Raiderettes to Be Paid $9 an Hour, Make Minimum Wage for 1st Time, continuing the discussion of wage and working conditions for NFL cheerleaders.

But earning minimum wage in California is a big deal to the cheerleader who first sued the Raiders in December, claiming that all the unpaid time she put into the Raiderettes yielded an illegal salary of just about $5 an hour.
