Exotic Dancers' lawsuit
It says that it was from a year ago today on the post. :-)
I'm sure they paid taxes accurately on the tips collected so it will be easy to go back and calculate what they are due....right? Brandy Apple....uh huh. \U0001f637
It was the worst job ever before. Women are outraged at being objectified and exploited, yet for what they expect to be big money, they compromise their standards and their expectations of how they are viewed and treated by others. Should it surprise anyone they eventually recognize the pay, however high, does not justify the denigration?
Tip share is in food and beverage also at least 3 % of food sale to the restaurant for the salary of other employees. Tips are not just yours anymore\U0001f625
So maybe they shouldve held different jobs no body is forced to work there.
Good I hope they win. The clubs are awful to the girls, they end up paying the clubs to work there. About the first $100 they make a night goes to the club. If they don't make at least $100 it ends up coming from their pockets. Exploitation of women is very real.
This is from a year ago, do we have an update on this lawsuit?
Give the girls the money they earned.
I used to go to clubs when I was in the Army. A typical bunch of macho guys on a Saturday night. After talking to one of the dancers about how they're paid (many clubs in Missouri charge as much as $300 a night on weekends for "stage rent") I decided that I would find out what I could about these practices whenever I went into a club. Stuff like this would get me to leave, or at least not come back. You can tell the ones that are well run, the ladies are typically happier and nicer.
Let the girls dance and have their tips. Laws against this are absurd.
I remember reading this.....That was a year ago
RFT recycles. They think it is Green to do so.
It's easier for people to judge others than it is for them to try to understand them. It takes more effort to try to think a different way than usual, and it seems that a lot of people around here are especially lazy in that regard.
Shit they make u cut your pants pockets out because they thought everyone was stealing from them and they would check to
I looked them up, they're ugly
These clubs have always exploited their employees. ALL their employees, and not just the entertainers. Forced overtime for free. NO breaks. No set lunch time. If you complained, you were fired. Horrible 'business'.
All these dancers sign contracts. They work for themselves
The issue is they are being ripped off. They aren't complaining that being a stripper is icky.
Well koodos to the girlZz.Butt they shldnt win a law suit.They arent happy they should find another job.All of the clubs are the same....likely a law or tax purposes.The GIRLS better be careful it is up to them to file their taxes and if they havent....well they are in trouble!!!!DUMMIES!!
I'm not sayin they should be ripped off but expect it to be a crappy job
Why do people insist on such sophomoric analysis and say it out loud? Regardless of what your job is you are still protected by the law. Just because society deems your position "less than" doesn't entitle your employer to exploit rip you off. People used the same logic to defend Mcdonald's went they stole wages from employees.
I represented a young lady here in Missouri in a legal matter - I discovered she won a federal lawsuit against her strip club. The court concluded she was an employee.
They make good money and pay no taxes call themselves indigent and file bankruptcy.
Brandy Apple sounds like a classy lady.
All those women are awesome. The fucking end.
None of the strippers at PT's look as good as the one on your post. Busted, RFT...!!!
They should be treated just like servers at restaurants..,,they get x amount on an hourly wage...plus they have to tip out the hostess, bartenders, bus boys etc....they also have to claim their tips as wages...
You're a stripper...did you think it would be glamorous? Esp at pts
Awesome! Go girls!
all that drakkar noir. the horror. the horror.
It's PT's nuff said.
Since PT's posts a schedule and fines workers around $25 an hour for missing work, it's hard for them to say that these aren't employees. If they are employees, they should make sure they at least make the minimum wage. They also charge dancers and strippers to work there. If a woman works 9 or 10 hours on a slow night or day and then makes $200 and has to 'tip out' $100 of it and also has to pay to work @ another $100, might have arrived late because of the snowstorm (another $25), paid a cab because she drinks at work so doesn't drive there or back ($60) it can all be a losing proposition.For those of you commenting about how the strippers may not pay taxes, think what the club is paying. So do you honestly think they're paying taxes on their late fines, tips and other things? It's a lot more money than the strippers wind up with.
I read this last week in the "Record"....I cracked up at the name Brandy Apple....Seriously
"The exotic dancing performed by [the dancers] while working at the
nightclubs does not require invention, imagination or talent in a
recognized field of artistic endeavor."Those are the strippers who do not get much in the way of tips. Those with talent get the tips. That many strippers work at multiple clubs shows they are independent contractors.
THANK YOU!!! SOME DID QUITE BETTER DUE TO DANCE TRAINING CHEERLEADING BARTENDING ITS QUITE A FEW HATS TO WEAR TO BE PERFECT BUT IF U CAN DANCE IT MATTERS
Strippers having to claim that their job requires no special talent? Really? If they have no talent, what sort of person works for just minimum wage and no tips? Granted the tip pooling is a bad business practice. Socialism run amuck.
What would they do if all the strip clubs in the area burned down all in one night? Lol.
I hope they filed taxes and claimed all of those tips. Hello IRS.
Strip clubs are nothing but legal Pimps.... Those gals could make a helluva lot more money being Escorts and keep their money to themselves.
YES IT IS
and look who sitting at the top Micheal "SPARKLES" Ocello
I hope them strippers kept copies of them receipts for that money they made and was forced to pay. Oh wait,, strippers don't give receipts. This will get tossed out faster then a $30 lap dance.
Samantha Boeckelmann lol
Well when you have to go in the hole for 60 or 70 dollars before you even get started, for paying a stage fee, DJ fee, dressing room charge, I'd be pissed off too, those clubs are full of sleazy ass scum. The managers are bunch of low life's who take advantage of young women. Most of those asshole's couldn't get a date if you paid em. Good for the girls.
They should have started up a dancers union years ago.
