    Default Strippers unemployment benefits are now a reality

    It has been reported that strippers can now receive unemployment benefits according to a ruling from the Kansas Supreme Court. The high court ruled that strippers have the right to receive unemployment insurance as employees instead of independent contractors.



    According to a report from the The Wall Street Journal on Feb. 4, the following statement sums up the ruling:

    "It found that strict house rules like rates and boundaries meant that the club has a “right of control” over dancers, according to The Wall Street Journal, “rendering them employees rather than contractual talent.”

    The ruling stems from when a Kansas stripper filed for unemployment in 2005, which she had been rejected for. However, later the court challenged strip clubs classifying their employees as independent contract workers.

    This was done by club owners in order to avoid having to pay their employees benefits and unemployment.

    Some may think of working in a strip club as sort of an in-between-jobs job but perhaps the ruling Friday now makes exotic dancing a legitimate career.

    The only thing that bothers me about the article is all the "goo" on the mirror behind the stripper.

    What is that?

    Never mind...don't tell me.

    And why shouldn't they receive unemployment compensation? They work at a job and if they get laid off will face financial hardships. They may have family to support, bills, etc. So what if their chosen profession is stripping?

    If you are self employed, you don't get unemployment benefits in most if not all jurisdictions.

    Most strippers are considered contractors, and therefore self employed.
