I went to uni studying nursing and in our first year one of the girls openly shared she worked as an escort in a brothel. She stated it was to make ends meet however she earnt $250 an hour and worked Friday, Saturday and Sunday night- she claimed she was booked solid for her 6 hour shift each night. Therefore earning $4500 before tax. As an empoverished student who worked 5 nights a week in a dementia specific nursing home that was soooooo much money- I was working 36 hours a week for just over $500- however I was making ends meet and could tell anyone who asked without any shame what I did. Roll on graduation- we all got jobs in hospitals- back then the base pay rate for a grad was $16 an hour (slightly less than a check out chic). The girl who had worked as an escort lasted 2 months before she left and went back to the brothel as she felt she was worth far more than $16 an hour. I guess no point to this other than the point- if you are escorting to pay uni costs etc do you "need" $4500 a week and would you be happy graduating onto 1/5 or less of that wage once you have a degree. It's not a career I could ever do not would I be happy for my daughters to do it.
