Yes, only in San Francisco. The strippers at a local strip club, the Lusty Lady, belong to the Service Employees International Union and are paid hourly, unlike strippers at other clubs. They want more booty to shake some booty. The organizing of the strippers into the union in 1996 is captured in the first-person documentary by Julia Query titled Live Nude Girls Unite!, which won the Best Documentary Audience Award at the 2000 San Francisco International Film Festival.

  1. i say whatever you do, SUPPORT YOUR STRIPPERS!!! dancers deserve alot more pay and more importantly, respect. the public needs to realize that sex industry workers are not all trashy etc. these jobs get us through school, pay our rent and ever so expensive child care. as stated by Delinqua, many of these ladies are working on masters degrees. support local 790!!!! BAD GIRLS LIKE GOOD CONTRACTS!
