Female students earning money lap dancing
Higher tuition fees in Britain mean that increasing numbers of female students seek employment as lap dancers
That young women choose to work as lap dancers is not of itself wrong, but there are two things which are not as they should be:
First, many women are forced into this line of work because it is the only way they can fund their education. If they had other ways of funding their studies and only opted for lap dancing to earn addition sums, then there would be no problem.
Second, employment conditions in lap top clubs are almost unregulated. Rather than try to limit or close these clubs (and thereby deny the women the income), the emphasis should be on employment protection rights (e.g. preventing employers imposing “fines”).
