Former Cowboys Cheerleader Sued Team Over Pay

A former Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader sued the team this week, saying that the team mascot 'Rowdy' made more than she did. Erica Wilkins filed a suit in U.S. District Court for Northern District of Texas on Tuesday and alleges that the Cowboys failed to pay her minimum wage and overtime and that she made a quarter of what the mascot made. Wilkins says the team violated The Equal Pay Act and Fair Labor Standards Act and seeks "other available damages." Wilkins cheered for the Cowboys from May 2014 through August 2017, saying the most she made in a year $16,516.01. Rowdy made about $65,000, according to the lawsuit.
