I just read an article that's not at all disturbing. The wonderful country of Germany legalized prostitution two years ago. I think we can all applaud how open-minded and magnanimous the government was in recognizing the legitimacy of the sex trade. Bravo Germany!
But there's a little bit of a catch that the women may not have anticipated. Since the government no longer views prostitution as immoral, it's treated like any other job. Brothels pay taxes like any other business. That means, however, that when someone is collecting unemployment--as I am now--they have to accept any job that is available. So now, a 25 year old waitress will lose her unemployment checks because a brothel offered her a job and, by law, she can't turn it down without losing her benefits. Essentially, the government is pushing women into prostitution.
Listen, I'm not going to sit here and judge Germany. They have a great track record when it comes to human rights and I'm sure the government knows what's best for its people. Besides, it doesn't make sense for able-bodied women to live off the dole when they are clearly capable of having sex for money.
What interests me about this case is how one applies for a job as a prostitute. Because if it's a job like any other, and brothels register with the job database, then it follows you would probably need a resume...
