'If you don't take a job as a prostitute, we can stop your benefits' - Telegraph
Wow, I don't even know what to say to that. We should legalize prostitution here in the States, take that money away from the pimps and gangsters who currently control it.
No worries for you since you're a freelance ho while cleaning the hotel rooms, puta
At the very least, decriminalize it. These men and women are not hurting anybody and may be providing a much needed service. How the prostitutes look at themselves for this, is their issue and not ours. JMHO.
I can't really make a decision about this story until I see what the gal looks like.
I read that differently to you. It seemed to me that the State had itself become the new pimp forcing women against their will into the sex industry.
Decriminalisation is one thing. Getting tax is too and both can be arranged. I know Edinburgh set something up many years ago, but this is talking about the State being able to force women into the sex industry or starve. They should have taken the time to ensure this was not included as a job people could be forced to do.
1. That story was published 7 years ago.
2. It's not true.
It is old and it is very true. Fortunately the authorities reconsidered and decided not stop the woman's unemployment benefits.
Germany sometimes runs into moral dilemmas. It had a tough time figuring out that cannibalism even if done as consensual gay sex was wrong.
Unemployment Agency doesn't send women to brothels.
But before 2006 the Agency has given subsidies to unemployed women who wanted to become self-employed Prostitutes. They could receive 3-year subsidies if their income was low.
It wasn't a special program for Prostitutes, these cases were individual cases.

There are underground-brothels and there are legal brothels who pay taxes and unemployment/health insurance for their employees.
If a brothel-owner wants a bartender or a cleaning-lady they have the right to contact Unemployment Agency.
Unemployment Agency doesn't connect Prostitutes to brothel-owners.
Unemployment Agency will also send a Christian into a Halal slaughterhouse or a Muslim into slaughterhouse were swines are processed.
