Now that you have the back story.
Let's get into this new law.
Keep in mind, This new law isn't in full effect until January, 2016.
The new law signed by Governor Jerry Brown yesterday classifies cheerleaders for any California professional (minor and major league level) sports team will be considered an employee eligible for overtime, sick days and other protections under this bill.
The Oakland Raiders have settled with current and past Raiderettes (about 90) in the amount of $1.2million dollars for lawsuit filed last year.
All I can say is: B*tch Better Have My Money.
I salute the Raiderettes for fighting for themselves.
People come to these games to see them and they should be treated and compensated just like the athletes.
When you think about it they truly still are not getting the money deserved. I hope they negotiated attorney fees!!
It's a start tho-
East Coast Cheerleaders you better get on you protesting 'ish!
