I still wouldn't do it, I would go to a shelter or live in my car before I would prostitute myself.
I think people who are saying they'd stock shelves or down size their house etc are being. A little presumptuous....
Not saying they shouldn't try or that the only option is protitution or stripping..
But, its not a matter of walking into Coles and demanding a night fill job to stack shelves And getting one.. Coles and majority of the other night filling places take the long way round to hire those staff and staff are in abundance.. Why hire you at $23+ an hour ( who in some cases have got no work experience in the field) when 18 year old Sally with a little bit of retail experience working at HJ's after school is $18 bucks an hour. Get me?
Also with down sizing your house you will not get a one bedroom rental if you are a family. No property manager alive ( believe me I am one) will present a family (mum,dad,kids) (mum+ kids) application to a owner of a one bedroom unit, its common sense.
(Assuming this is what people mean as I would assume if your facing prostitution/stripping you would have already exhausted your avenue of property ownership and no longer own or have the money for selling etc)
So I think those who have entered the prostitution or stripping field may need others to understand that the avenues we are so willingly stating we'd do ver and above being a prostitute are not as easy to get as you imagine.
And by no way have I been affiliated in prostitution or agree with it.. Like you a of exhaust every other avenue first before getting to that point.. I just wanted to make it a point that these avenues aren't always as easy to get as some have made out here..
