(NEWSER) – A New Jersey court on Wednesday gave the Flight Crew—aka the New York Jets cheerleaders—something to cheer about: a $325,000 settlement of the class action lawsuit filed in 2014 by a cheerleader identified as Krystal C., CNN Money reports.
That amounts each of the 52 cheerleaders getting $2,500 per season worked and $400 per photo shoot. The settlement covers the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons. New York State Sen. Diane Savino, per the New York Post, cheered the settlement, calling on the NFL to "develop uniform rules … to ensure that all cheerleaders in every state received the employee pay and protections they deserve."
