Dutch Prostitutes Want Retirement Benefits Like Soccer Players
I don’t see an issue with this do you?
They provide a service just like Cab Drivers and Mechanics, why shouldn’t they get 401K? Here is the case they are making according to NBC News.
Wil Post, a lawyer for Freya (a company who owns brothels) told Dutch newspaper Volkskrant on Tuesday that “Footballers and prostitutes both do a difficult physical job that they cannot do their whole life. Therefore, they would like to be able to save as much as they can.”
Prostitution has been legal and regulated in the Netherlands since 2000, provided that there is no coercion, with businesses like Freya offering prostitutes, who qualify for unemployment benefits and a state pension in the Netherlands, a contract and salary.
“Men prefer young women: there always comes an age when prostitutes no longer get any work,” the lawyer told the AFP news agency, which reported Post as saying “it can take a prostitute more than 10 years to stop working because she’s trapped as she can’t save money.”
Post has asked the Dutch tax authorities for Freya’s employees to enjoy the same pension perks as footballers who can put up to 5,000 euros (almost $7,000) a month into a tax-free pension pot.
If OJ Simpson gets a pension, so should the Dutch Hookers.
