FlipBoard Strip clubs are at the backbone of the American economy along with eternal industries such as water, electricity, health care and, not to be morbid, funeral homes. However, like with any establishment with a predetermined set of customers, strip clubs set their own rules that need to be observed and respected. Also, you must tip well and be somewhat polite to everyone working — bartenders, bouncers, waitresses; not just the girls dancing without any clothes on. Side note about the women on the poles: That can easily be burned on drinks alone, not to mention tips for the girls who are working the poles. I learned this the hard way during my second experience at a strip club.

Most of the men who were willing to give me copious amounts of money wanted to have copious amounts of conversation in addition to nakedness, and I was able to oblige. That style never worked especially well for me. I was a long-term investment type of girl, who often required a warm-up and cool-down period, and I attracted like-minded customers who required the same. As a stripper, the club does not pay you. There is no hourly wage you earn to stand around waiting for someone to ask you to take your clothes off. However, I can only assume that people believe strippers are independent contractors because they think that the money they pay for dances is given to the club, which in turn is doled out to the dancer in the form of a stipend or salary. In my experience in the city of Los Angeles, at least, as I found that laws that govern how exotic dancers get paid are often dictated on a county-by-county basis , it is exactly the opposite.
