The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders Get Paid Less Than the Mascot

A former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader is suing the team, claiming they owe her money.  And she also accuses the team of unfairly paying her less than half of what they paid the MASCOT, who was a guy. 

She says she was making $8 per hour, but that the mascot "Rowdy" made $25 per hour and about $65,000 per year, compared to the $16,500 she made. 

She says she and the cheerleaders did work that required, quote "equal skill, effort, and responsibility under similar working conditions," but were paid "significantly less" than Rowdy.  There's no comment from the team.  Or Rowdy.
