IBTimes: UK Government pays sex clubs to employ teenage girls

Printer-friendly version

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has paid cash incentives of over £2,000 to lap-dancing bars and similar establishments to hire young unemployed people aged 18-24 as part of its Youth Contract scheme.

Strip clubs and massage parlours that offer full-time jobs to young people for at least 26 weeks can claim up to £2,275 – so long as the young person is neither a "performer" nor "performing sexual acts".
