Should a young professional who works also as a stripper get fired?

by frugalista on May 24, 2012

Hey Frugs! A former society reporter from the Houston Chronicle got fired after the paper found out that she worked as a stripper. Sarah Tressler sued her company for firing her. Now, I’m sure working as a stripper is a guaranteed way to make extra money on the side. Also, newspapers aren’t the most stable place to work. Who wouldn’t want to save money by working a side job? But as a young professional, you’d have to know that the bosses wouldn’t be overwhelmed knowing that you worked the pole by night. You can check out her blog, Diary of an Angry Stripper. She also has a book coming out in June. Why do I think she’ll end up earning more money than her newspaper salary? I mean, she’s already done work for Good Morning America! I’ve worked for years as a reporter. I most certainly haven’t had the opportunity to be on GMA. She’s a New York University graduate and has taught at the University of Houston. Have I’ve been doing something wrong? Let me go find out if Groupon has a strip pole aerobics class!!! Just jokes! :)

Is it OK for a young professional to work in the sex industry as a side job? Is it good or bad? Will it set women back? Does it empower women?
