A NY judge ruled in favor of the strippers at Rick’s Cabaret in Manhattan that they deserve to be paid at least minimum wage. The ladies with daddy issues sued the club for withholding payment and charging them crazy fees for use of the club facilities. It seems strange to me as I always assumed that they kept at least some of the money they got for lap dances and handjobs performed on people not me in the champagne room. I think it’s only fair that they get paid what someone shredding meat product for sandwiches gets paid at Arby’s. Just because these girls made bad life decisions and ended up dry humping Japanese businessmen for a living doesn’t mean they shouldn’t get decent wages. In fact, I think it’s time for a stripper union.
The International Union Of Strippers and Cage Dancers 69. Clubs would have to negotiate equitable pay, benefits, and herpes simplex treatment for these performing artists. They provide a valuable service to the community. Where would bachelor parties go if there were no strip clubs? I’ve been to non-titty bachelor parties and they fucking suck. Where else can guys going through dry spells or married men whose wives are disgusted by the sight of their dicks get some female attention? Every two-bit background actor in TV or film is protected by a union, why not the girls who every man universally agrees perform a much needed community service?
