    An Oakland Raiders cheerleader, known as Lacy T., says she and her fellow cheerleaders are not even making minimum wage, so she is going on the offensive to fight for better pay, as well as compensation for things like hair and public appearances.

    Among the instructions and tips for living and shaking hands well are how to eat at functions if you don't feel like eating, and who not to date -- like Raiders players, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

    The handbook on cheerleader etiquette and behavior has become public at the same time a Raiders cheerleader sued the team for working conditions and pay below minimum-wage levels.

    In the suit, a former cheerleader says that between mandatory events and practices, pay amounted to less than $5 an hour.
