Former Raiderette Files Class-Action Lawsuit Against the Team

As a proposed $1.25 million settlement for cheerleader wage theft pends approval in an Alameda County court, another class action lawsuit over pay and compensation has been filed against the Oakland Raiders by a former Raiderette. The latest lawsuit, filed on January 26, 2015 against the Raiders and the NFL on behalf of San Benito County resident Susie Sanchez and Raiderettes from the last four years, goes further than the previous lawsuit by alleging cheerleaders were denied media exposure opportunities promised to them in employment agreements. Sanchez was a 37-year-old rookie on the 2011-2012 squad when she was dubbed the grandmother cheerleader because she was, in fact, a grandmother. She was in talks with Lifetime that year for a program on being a cheerleading grandmother but the Raiders shut it down because it wasn't going to benefit its organization. In September, the Raiders reached a proposed settlement $1.25 million settlement in a class-action lawsuit filed by two former cheerleaders to compensate unpaid wages and overtime. Before the Raiders raised Raiderette salaries last summer, the cheerleaders were paid $125 a home game, and were unpaid for post regular season games and the numerous practices and events they are required to attend. Their pay worked out to less than $6.50 an hour at most, Bradshaw said. Minimum wage in California was raised to $8 an hour on Jan. 1, 2008, and to $9 an hour on July 1, 2014. Raiders cheerleaders also spend $3,000 to $4,000 a season out of pocket on tans, hair styles, manicures, and makeup and other beauty-related services to maintain an appearance demanded of them.
