According to DallasNews.com, Wilkins said she was supposed to get paid $8 an hour for practices, training, rehearsals and filming for the CMT show "Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team."
But she said her pay didn't even add up to the federal and state minimum wage when divided by the number of hours she worked in a week. She also said she wasn't paid overtime or paid for time she spent posting to social media.
The lawsuit claims male mascot, Rowdy, made about $25 an hour.
