She got the poms poms, but

Not the indentured servitude, as she was free to stop cheering for her team any ol' time she wanted;
A former Milwaukee Bucks cheerleader has filed a federal lawsuit accusing the National Basketball Association team of failing to pay her at least a minimum wage or overtime for her work, court documents showed.

Lauren Herington, 22, worked 30 to 40 hours in an average week in her one season for the team, making about $3.50 to $4.50 an hour, and was not compensated for overtime when she worked more than 40 hours in a week, attorney Scott Andresen said.
So, we'll have to give her an F for;
"They are indentured servants with pom poms," Andresen said by phone, adding that more Bucks cheerleaders could possibly join the lawsuit.
Not too surprisingly;
A Milwaukee Bucks team representative could not be reached immediately to comment.
There's never an economist around to cheer for, when you want one.
