Go team! California bill proposes cheerleaders as employees

Legal cases against other NFL teams, like the Cincinnati Bengals, Buffalo Bills, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New York Jets, have also been filed related to low pay.

Raiders cheerleaders, previously paid $1,250 per season each, calculated their hourly wage to be about $5 an hour, according to an article by U.S. News.

If passed, the bill will apply to cheerleading squads at minor or major league level baseball, basketball, football, ice hockey and soccer teams.

The bill passed the California State Senate 26-6 last Monday. Gov. Brown is expected to approve or veto the bill within the next week, according to his press secretary.

Do You Need a Permit to Remodel Your House?

When Are Permits Required?

While laws may vary from city to county to state, many states, such as New Jersey and Pennsylvania follow the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC).

Permits Not Required

However, there are certain exceptions. Permits are not required for:

  • Building a fence less than 6 feet tall,
  • Building a retaining wall less than 4 feet tall,
  • Repainting inside and outside the home,

  • Repairing leaks or clearing blockages in plumbing,

Do Landlords Have to Accept Section 8?

If a prospective tenant asks, “Do you accept Section 8?” how do you respond? Can you say no, or must you always say yes?

Any run-in with the police can be intimidating and stressful. Above all else, you should stay calm. Don’t let fear overwhelm you into saying things that aren’t true. Whatever you say can be used against you later on, even if the police haven’t read you your Miranda rights yet (more on that later). Also, do not run or become belligerent with the police. You never know how aggressively they may react, and you could get hurt.

2. Know Your Rights

These may sound familiar but they are important. You have the right to:

Remain silent

You always have the right to remain silent, even if the police didn’t tell you so. Police aren’t required to read you the Miranda Warning until you’re in custody and being interrogated.
