More bad PR for the NFL regarding their cheerleader problems. A former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader has filed a federal lawsuit against the team, alleging she wasn't paid for all her work and made less money than the team's male mascot.

Erica Wilkins, who worked for the Cowboys from 2014 to 2017, is seeking "unpaid overtime wages, minimum wages, and all other available damages," citing the Fair Labor Standards Act, according to court documents filed Tuesday. 

The lawsuit said female cheerleaders were paid at a rate less than "Rowdy," the mascot.

The lawsuit claims that Wilkins' usual pay rate was $8 per hour, but that payment was sometimes incomplete, and that the team's male mascot made $25 per hour and about $65,000 per year. Not a bad gig to be a mascot. Beats the hell out of being a cheerleader apparently.
