1.) bluecat - 02/20/2014
A cheerleader has filed a Class Action Complaint against the Cincinnati Bengals, claiming she is underpaid for the hours of work she puts in for the team.

Alexa Brenneman, a member of the Ben-Gals from approximately May 2013 through Jan. 2014, alleges she is compensated, at most, $90 per home game at which the Ben-Gals cheer.

Brenneman says between mandatory practices, public appearances, pregame time at the stadium and calendar posing/promotions, she works more than 300 hours a year for the Bengals' organization. Yet, she claims her pay rate comes out to less than $2.85 an hour, well under the 2013 Ohio minimum wage rate of $7.85.

I say the Bengals should pay these women more, lest the team end up with a cheerleading squad named "The Ben-Gays".

I was thinking she would take the same stance the football players did (see what I did there?) She only has a short time to get that kind of money (Who wants to see hagged out cheerleader?) so she deserves more.

When I first saw she was making $2.85/hour I thought, yeah that's about right.

Are you calling bluecat stupid?
7.) Hunter - 02/20/2014
I'm assuming she knew the pay before she took the job? :cf:

For cry'n out loud. We hardly see more than 3 seconds of cheerleaders durring a game any more.

Give them some Patron...That'll keep 'em happy for a while, but watch out for the personality change at Shot Number Four. That's when you tell the contract lawyer it would be better if he left quietly and came back in a couple of days...
