That's their reasoning! They must protect you from yourself!
It would seem to me that one would be able to decide for themselves if taking a job is the sex industry is better than being unemployed and starving.
I agree with you. If an adult wants to work in the sex industry, that should be their choice.
Wow! That doesn't happen very often! Thanks.
Okay, your first problem is you're talking about somewhere else, other than the U.S. of A.
quoted from the article you linked----
"Britain is to ban employers looking for lap dancers, strippers, topless barmaids or sexy web-cam performers from placing adverts at Jobcentres."
What other governments do to their people is for their people to deal with.
Is it right? As a loyal U.S. citizen, I would think it is wrong for government to determine what is in the best interest of my survival with regards to working. With that said, I'll disagree with government banning an individual's right to work where they can, so they can support themselves, by whatever means necessary.
Uh thanks but you don't know me or where I'm from so the fact that this is being done by the British government shouldn't matter to you or to anyone else.
Are you jumping on what I said or did you NOT read what I posted?
I didn't say anything about where you come from or who you are. So, with that at least, keep a civil tongue.
Secondly, as I stated, this is for those people who live in that Country and not in The United States of America, and should NOT be a concern for the United States Citizens.
It should be the concern of those who live there. If you do not live there.....then why bring it up?
Most of your post are concerning US government? Or did you fail to realize that also?
Next time, read the words I post and NOT what you want them to say.
Newsflash, there are people on this forum that aren't from the US. They might be interested in this discussion even if you are not. Thanks again for adding to the discussion.
As long as they are able to make the choice willingly, they should have that right. The industry should also be regulated to fight disease, coercion, and slavery - none of which can be addressed by the free market.
tick...tick...tick - awaiting LDT's response that capitalism is self-regulating and government only makes things worse.
So you're saying that, if prostitution were legal, the women wouldn't be taken care of better? That it wouldn't be easier for the employers to make sure their employees were NOT sex slaves? that it wouldn't be easier for the "women of the night" to demand the customers wear protection?
Cuz nowadays, cops just go up to the women, and say "i'm gonna take you in or you're gonna give me what I want"... and... they have to deal with it; the women have NO recourse against customer abuse; the employers have no real ability to run a background check on their employees (in fact, if they did, they'd likely be busted)...
Sounds to me like the free market could really improve the industry.
I beat LDT!
How long do you think a restaurant would be in business if they served food that made people sick?
There are already regulations against slavery, etc, and yet these things are an everyday occurrence.
Prior to the existence of county boards of health (government), a great many did.
Oh and now no one gets sick? Really? And it's because of the department of health? Trust me word of mouth is much more effective than the way that department operates.
That's an assumption, the statistics don't agree. Read about the frequency of food poisonings and other abuses during the golden age of American capitalism.
People knew a lot less then than they do now.
Most of these bureaucrats can be bought off.
It is the restaurant owner/manager that either does his job or not.
The bureaucrat is just the typically doltish employee who isn't sure what he's looking at.
Health care is gonna be a treat with these buffoons running it.
You have a lot of restaurant experience?
"The bureaucrat is just the typically doltish employee who isn't sure what he's looking at."
Also, have you had any experience working in government? I've worked in both government and the private sector and I have say that the caliber of employees was quite a bit higher in government. The ones I've worked with were, on the whole, better educated and more skilled. In addition, they took their jobs seriously and understood that they were servants of the public and acted accordingly. Of course, there are always exceptions, but that is true of the private sector, too.
I've seen you diss government workers quite a lot. Do you actually know what you're talking about?
So, you have a lot of experience in the industry?
Whose responsibility is it to make sure the women who work at Nevada's brothels are free from STD's?
Private companies are the ones making sure the women go to the Doctor.
If brothels were legal in all states there would be some federal agency wasting money and employing the laziest people they could find so things would just not be taken care of.
Private industry has a financial stake in making sure they are providing the best product they can.

To conservatives out there, do you believe that American culture and society is becoming more irresponsible, becoming more dependent upon the government to solve their and their family problems? Do you further believe that people feel that they should not have to solve their problems and that...

Is your age the reason why you are still unemployed? When you are told in most cases you are "overqualified" do you immediately think that your age could be the reason why employers do not want to hire you or they do not want to pay you for what you are actually worth?
