With a lawsuit still pending from the Raiderettes, the Oakland Raiders have voluntarily agreed to pay  their cheerleaders the equivalent of minimum wage for the first time ever. Between rehearsals, charity events and games, the Raiderettes will now earn $3,000 over the course of the season. This somewhat paltry number made me wonder how long it takes for other NFL employees to earn that amount. Let's find out:

 
MASCOT
2.5 weeks
 
ANY PRACTICE SQUAD PLAYER
3.5 days
 
SEAN PAYTON (COACH, SAINTS)
8.5 hours
 
JAY CUTLER (QB, CHICAGO BEARS)
10 seconds
 
ROGER GOODELL (COMMISSIONER)
13 minutes

Goodell makes $44.2 million per year. Assuming a 60-hour work week, he out-earns a cheerleader in 13 minutes.
