(NEWSER) – Five former cheerleaders are taking the Buffalo Bills to court, saying they were paid less than minimum wage and subjected to disturbing physical scrutiny. The Bills "exploited the women by failing to pay them in accordance with New York State minimum wage laws," the lawsuit, which also targets the squad's current and former management companies, alleges. One member reportedly made just $150 over the course of a season, Deadspin notes.
We talked with Heather, a former NFL cheerleader with the Indianapolis Colts, about the latest cheer squad to sue over low pay and excessive physical, mental scrutiny. Here's the story and you can listen below to what Heather said about the suit from her perspective.
