Sup Travellers?! Do you consider Stripping to be a real job? Well it isn't. You can underpay or not grant wages to a Stripper and not have your "company" sued for it. Well, at least in New York. Bur it seems as though that will end very soon. A New York City judge who works behind the scenes as a stripper is defending the rights of Strippers in the city of New York. The federal judge has ruled that exotic dancers at a New York City strip club are protected by labor laws and entitled to be paid at least a minimum wage. Read on.


According to the New York Times, a Federal Judge in New York City ruled that exotic dancers at a New York City strip club are protected by labor laws and entitled to be paid at least a minimum wage. The ruling came Tuesday in a class-action lawsuit brought by current and former dancers at Rick's Cabaret in midtown Manhattan. The lawsuit charged that the strippers were denied wages and required to pay a variety of fees to the club. The club had argued that the dancers were independent contractors. But Judge Paul Engelmayer ruled that the dancers were the "main attraction" at the club and integral to its success.


Let me tell you why I think this is bullsh*t. Strippers are, as the club owner said, independent contractors. They make money based on how many men decide to shove bills up their a*s. I'm not against Strippers' rights, if they have any. I'm just saying, Stripping is an entrepreneurial "business". Meaning, Strippers make what they get and that's it. Same thing goes for Barbers, Bloggers and Doubles Vendors. You don't get a wage as an entrepreneur. You reap what you sow. Hopefully I didn't insult any Strippers who are reading this. Please remember that i'm not a Lawyer or an expert on Law so I may not be 100% correct on this. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
