#METOO comes for NBA as DANCERS COMPLAIN of LOW WAGES and FORCED EATING DISORDERS :mjdamn:
 

 



NBA Dancers Detail Issues Within Industry Like Low Pay, Eating Disorders, Weight Restrictions

In a story from Abby Haglage of Yahoo Lifestyle, members of NBA dance teams spoke about some of the various issues within their profession related to body image and payment.

Women talked about how some teams monitor the weight of the dancers and have penalties such as benching the performers when dancers weighed more than their "goal weight." They also said some teams would openly tell dancers to immediately lose weight upon making the team.

Additionally, they mentioned how this fixation over maintaining a certain weight caused women to develop eating disorders or take laxatives so they could "fit into this image." A former member of the Mavericks dance team mentioned a time when a rookie on the squad found another dancer passed out in the bathroom because she had been throwing up the food she ate.

Dancers also discussed how teams occasionally didn't pay them for some appearances at charity event. Some were paid as little as $15 for practices and $25 for games and how they are required to foot the bill when it came to upholding certain beauty standards even though they were not making a living wage.

The Mavericks were the only one of the 14 clubs that commented on the problems dancers mentioned to Yahoo Lifestyle regarding strict body standards.

"A previous version of our contract contained a single clause that mentioned a weight policy," the statement the Mavericks provided Yahoo said. "This policy provided that dancers were to remain within five pounds of their determined performance weight. Image concepts like this were prevalent and previously accepted in the industry; however, not anymore at the Mavs."

Of the 15 women interviewed for the story, all but one said they needed to work a second job in order to have enough money to survive, and most said they were working two other jobs. Some described their pay as "gas money" and they also noted how they were told the job is part-time pay but a full-time commitment.

They mentioned how the money they had to put into paying for their hair, manicures, tans and other beauty treatments would leave some without enough money to afford groceries.

"Was it enough to make ends meet? Not even close," former Suns dancers Madison Murray told Yahoo. "That was one of the hardest parts. If girls were doing OK, it was because their parents were funding them. I was self-funding, so I had three jobs. I was getting up at 4 a.m. and working until 11:30 p.m."

image pandoras box just opened. The Mavericks look guilty as hell being the ONLY team and the FIRST team to immediately respond to these allegations. Especially since they have a s3xual a.ssault and general misconduct towards women investigation still ongoing


All that money these franchises have and they doing this to the dancers?

People thought this NBA dancer was lying and mocked her when she tried speaking out by herself last month. Now all the dancers are coming out meaning this was 100% true

You sound crazy bro, do you know how much billions NBA has to spend?

There is no excuse for the dancers to going through what they're describing and being stiffed out of paychecks. thats CRAZY

Damn, $15-$25?? I knew the dancers didn't get paid much because it was more about the exposure than the pay. But this sh*t is ridiculous.

The weight standards are in the contract. Nobody forced them to throw up. I'm a.ssuming they were told the pay was sh*t as well. Why they would subject themselves to horrific treatment is beyond me but they signed that dotted line(i'm not talking about sh*t like locking women in closets). Hopefully this sparks some collective effort that's worth more than a hashtag.

My home girl dances for the Sixers. They definitely don't make sh*t, but they also don't have a 4 am - 11 pm commitment like these Mavs dancers are talking. That's crazy. She has a full time, regular 9 -5. She also flipped it into doing some backup dancing for Ashanti

NFL Cheerleaders are paid about 50 a game chicks trying to get camera time to get that modeling coontract. None of those girls are making careers out of just being a dancer, just a step in their career.
