Strippers want all their cash. Black and Latina pole dancers in New York City are going on strike over bartenders trying to skim some of their hard-earned cash.
Reports Page Six:
One issue that has pole pros up in arms is that a new breed of scantily clad bartenders at city clubs are allegedly earning more. Dancers say the gyrating-but-clothed bartender babes steal strippers’ hard-earned tips by surreptitiously sweeping cash off stages and onto bar floors when customers “make it rain.”
Blog MTO News explains of the lap-dancing labor dispute, “A group of the TOP African-American and Latina strippers in New York City have gone ON STRIKE. The dancers are claiming that they will NOT return to work until clubs give them EQUAL TREATMENT with bartenders.”
The “de facto” leader of the movement is local dancer Gizelle Marie.
Even Cardi B has weighed in—she’s Team Stripper.
Ladies, get your bread.
