she buys me yummy lean cuisines and healthy choices. they're a reasonable option, I think. not terrible for you at all. but I need to be HOT for law school.

people like her annoy me. you're a stripper, you know what you're getting into. you don't like it, don't do it. cry me a river.

edit to say that i only skimmed the article because she was annoying me, but she doesn't require minimum wage because she gets tips, like a waitress. btw, she'd better watch out because i bet she didn't list those thousands of dollars in tips on her income tax statement.

well... I mean I think they should be being paid that minimum wage required for people who are tipped. what is it, 3.15?

i don't think they should have to. they're giving her the platform to make thousands of dollars, and she's crying about not getting 3.15 an hour? i have no sympathy. i'm not saying legally they shouldn't, but i am saying that that law is to protect people who aren't making enough money to support themselves, not for those who are making $100,000/year.

From my understanding she had to pay them if she didn't show up... if it was truly a cooperative that wouldn't be the case. it's reasonable to have to pay each group that helps her make her money, but she shouldn't owe them if she doesn't attend

10K a year merit scholly in the mail today. I will definitely be visiting now.

I am still leaning Georgetown, but if I can get it up to 20K Fordham might leapfrog (lucky Kim has this decision I believe).

Hmm...Im sure she knew what she was getting herself into, but I still think she should be paid minimum wage. I'm guessing none of you have ever seen this documentary LinkRemoved.

I'm betting it will be, and maybe for 20K. Admission people seem to have liked you slightly more than me throughout this cycle; either because you are not a splitter like me, or because you are not boring like me.

i just hate frivolous law suits. she had to pay 80 bucks, not worth wasting the court's time IMO.

I'm with you on this. It's silly to fight when you're making that much money.

But the issue is whether you're an employee or an independent contractor. The club wants to have it both ways. Either they are employees, in which case, you have schedules and penalties for not showing up on time, etc. OR They are independent contractors, in which case you don't have to pay them a minimum wage or social security or worker's compensation. It seems like they're trying to have a hybrid that benefits the club the most.

One owner of a different club that was interviewed has the right idea. He says the dancers are just paying customers who can get on stage and pocket the cash they receive. No schedules, no penalties, no wages.

like i said, i barely read it because it annoyed me lol i definitely agree with what you're saying here. it's kind of like this place i go to in the summer. the bartenders make so much money in tips that they have to pay the club for the right to work there. i think that unfortunately, if you choose to strip (not judging the profession at all, they make BANK), you're subject to the rules of the place you choose to work at. if you don't like the rules, you need to find another place to work.

Ditto. I had an impromptu meeting that went from 11 to almost 4. So, now I get to come back to my office to find a day's worth of stuff I can't do in the next two hours.

At least the day is going by super quickly.

Dinged today at Fordham Part Time. 3.84, 162 from a top public school. On LSP, it says I am an "admit". I was also rejected at UC Hastings which put me as a "strong consider".

LSP sucks.

Hm. Just got an email containing this:

"As a person of color, UDC-DCSL, the public law school of the Nation's Capital, is especially interested in your candidacy. The School of Law offers a diverse student body and a welcoming and supportive learning environment. We encourage you to submit your application; and, to allow you more time to prepare your application, we are extending the application deadline to April 15, 2010."

Which is super great, except I'm pretty sure that my Italian/Middle Eastern background does not qualify me as a "person of color." Anyone else get this?

Edit: Also, very poorly written with the dangling modifier. So strange.

Wow. That's so weird. I'm getting scared now. What was your complete date?
