Philly Penthouse Club strippers awarded $4.6 million

A federal judge in Philadelphia has awarded $4.6 million to a group of erotic dancers after a jury agreed the women were cheated out of their wages and tips at the Penthouse Club in the city’s Port Richmond neighborhood.

Dancer Priya Verma filed a class-action suit in 2013 against the strip club at Castor and Delaware Avenues. The suit alleged management had improperly classified the dancers as independent contractors instead of employees.

The Penthouse Club tried to have the case dismissed by claiming it did not pay the dancers but only rented stage time to them. In an unusual memorandum following a 2014 hearing, U.S. District Judge Anita Brody disagreed, stating the club had acted as an employer because it could fine dancers for any number of offenses and fire the women at any time.

The suit culminated in a three-day trial last week. According to court records, at least 353 women danced at the Penthouse Club from 2009 through 2012, the time covered by the suit. The club, which is locally owned, licenses the “Penthouse” name and is not part of a national chain.

1. I see exotic dancers and sex actors the same as pro athletes

They can only do this job for so long, as long as their bodies hold out and as long they are beautiful to behold.

It's a short lived career.
