I have been a stripper to pay my way through uni....I would do it again also without hesitation. I actually loved the work and given that I have 11 years of formal dance training it would seem a shame to waste my ability anyway (I can probably even still do the splits with little difficulty although I haven't tried since getting preg with my first).
I enjoy dancing and as long as I felt safe and secure in the club I was working in (and the club I did work in was very upmarket and very safe) then I don't see a problem in doing what I love anyway - just without clothes on. It really isn't as seedy and "dirty" as some people believe.....at least not in the place I worked (a very well known club in Melbourne). I also cleared a minimum of $1200 for 3 nights work - and I didn't even work the floor as much as I could have done as I preferred to chat for ages with people I found interesting.
I probably would not consider prositution unless I was in dire straits indeed. However I am currently going to uni and yes it is very tight financially (extra daycare costs, driving, parking, textbooks blah blah blah). I am also doing a double bach in Nursing and Midwifery and my course is not offered online or in any other mode except full-time/on campus. I need to travel half an hour each way to drop my kids off at their sitters and then pick them up + another 20 mins in driving to and from the uni. I really don't have time to get a job, part-time or otherwise unless I want to never see my children. My uni courseload is H.E.A.V.Y and I need weekends to study and make sure I absorb the information I learn during the lectures and keep myself up to date with the readings. A job is really out of the question for me.

I would escort before I would ever deal drugs, but I would strip/lingerie waitress (if I had the body for it) before I would escort.
Id rather take a legal avenue, like the sex industry, rather than illegal such as drugs/stolen goods/shoplifting etc

Thanks for that link Morrigan. I will definitely look into it. The reason I am going with MIL rather than full-time care is because my son is autistic and doesn't do well with strangers and is basically a handful anyway. He has no social empathy and I doubt most daycare providors would appreciate the extra time they would need to devote to him (he has multiple meltdowns in a day). There is a special care centre nearby that I have been referred/recommended to so he will be going there 1 day a week. They deal with extra needs children so J will be "normal" in that centre.
Trichalicious - good point about the legality thing! As distasteful as the sex industry might be to some people it is legal (within certain certain parameters of course). I would never deal in drugs! Or do anything that wasn't strictly legal.

Well actually being there its easy to say oh this is what I would do.. truth be told it is never as easy as moving cheaper and selling the lot and budgeting pretty hard to budget on negative funds when you sold everything already.
I have done that and to be honest had my grandfather been overseas Id of worked ANYWHERE that was hiring and since stripping was the only place and I had the bod for it I WOULD have if it came to that... Id prefer to put food on the table the legal way even if it meant doing any job that was hiring (at the time no where but sex industry was hiring)
DH tried but his wage with the stupid lying new boss was really hard to live on when we had set bills that had to be paid and could not be reduced or cancelled

I would consider stealling the discards of mass industry - ie from rubbish bins at shopping centres or on industrial sites - but never from people. I could not take something that someone else needed. (I feel bad enough with regards to pushing my case for public housing at the moment, because if I get a house that means someone else doesn't. Though I understand it is important for my children so am doing so.)
