    Finally someone is doing something about it. Good for them.

      i’m sorry but this article is VERY one sided… there’s a lot more to this than this is leading you to believe. unfortunately, the dancers will find out soon enough…

      • Ski Sker

        Can you provide some more information please? I want to understand the other side.

      • FreakEnigma

        the other side… what these attorneys, more than likely are not telling these girls is that after they “win” they’re now liable for all taxes, including RETROACTIVELY. And we all know how virulent the IRS can be… If i make you an employee, i have a lot more control as a club owner, like scheduling, uniforming, and over how money is collected on the floor and in VIP sections… also… I could very well enter into Non-Compete agreements, so there potentially goes the freedom to work at other clubs whenever you want… i could also eliminate your ability to gain from rainmaking customers, i could easily have the customer prepay the club for your services… sounds a little exploitive, but that’s potentially the environment these Lawsuits can create… Now, Back to the TAX end of it… being that in strip clubs, you’re dealing in primarily cash, which isn’t easily tracked… more than a few dancers I know, make six figures annually, most of which is in cash, which for the most part, isn’t trackable. as an employee, it will be… and then taxed… those six figures, can and will drop drastically… i understand both sides past the politics and lawyer rhetoric. but if the trend continues, Clubs, in order to stay open will have to get creative to continue cash flow… BTW I’m in the industry…

        Interesting. I was in the industry for several years myself and back then (5 yrs ago) there was a lot of talk about unionizing. We were already employees and got an hourly wage on top of the cash tips. It was a pr3tty good situation, actually. We were just dishonest about what we made on our taxes, just like waitresses lol. Most girls were making really good money / still earned six figures, and being employees didn’t stop that. Yes, some clubs did have noncompete clauses, but it wasn’t an issue since nobody really needed to work other clubs. Some girls did try it and got away with it, some girls did it and got caught and fired. But I see your points though because if a club wanted to take advantage in some way, they might. But then girls just wouldn’t dance there, they’d find somewhere else less exploitative.

        good points… but the difference lies in owners actually setting it up properly… most can’t see past their current business models… i’ve heard of it, and seen it in action…

      • Ski Sker

        Yeah I don’t know if I would trust it in shady Atlanta. Strip clubs are a lot different there.

  • FreakEnigma

    almost NONE of the pictures are from the Diamond Club… there from DOA, and NO they’re not the same place….

  • FreakEnigma

    I’ll correct myself slightly… NONE of these pics are the Diamond Club, they’re all from DOA…

    WHY CAN WE NOT SAY PR3TTY ON THIS SITE?! The f*ck, all of these urban blogs have some retarded a** rules about what you can say.

No thanks
