HACKENSACK, N.J. (AP) - A former cheerleader with the New York Jets has sued the team, claiming she and others were underpaid in violation of New Jersey state wage laws.
The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in state Superior Court in Bergen County, where the Jets and the New York Giants play their home games at MetLife Stadium.
The cheerleader is identified in court papers as Krystal C. California-based attorney Sharon Vinick says she and other members of the Jets Flight Crew earned $150 per game and $100 for required special events. But she says they weren't paid for practices or other appearances.
Vinick says when the unpaid hours are factored in the $1,700 per season works out to $3.77 per hour. She also represents cheerleaders with the Oakland Raiders in a similar lawsuit.
A Jets spokesman won't comment on the lawsuit.
