Co-op brothel may open for Vancouver escorts in response to unsafe working conditions
Plans to open what may be Canada's first co-op brothel was sparked by a report that documented severe working conditions for Vancouver's licensed escorts.
The report, put together by a group of Vancouver escorts, shows many escorts feel endangered by unsafe working conditions. Some escorts reported being told by their employers that the use of condoms during sex was "up to the customer."
How their employers can put these demands on their escorts is outrageous.To make matters worse, they get fined or punished if they do not comply. Fortunately some of the escorts feel that they do not have to put up with this. The escort agencies that encourage this behaviour are licensed.
This article reinforces why being an independent escort is safest. I am concerned about the women that feel they need to engage in unsafe working conditions.I find it unsettling that this still goes on in this day and age.
