Shelley Lynn Claims McDonald’s Low Wages Played Role In Her Turning To Prostitution (h/t IBF)

Handley “emotionally and psychologically” coerced Lynn into prostitution in part because McDonald’s paid her minimum wage, offered a poor health care plans and no benefits and had no system for filing grievances against employers who abused their power, according to the complaint. All of these factors allowed Handley, her employer when the two began dating, to unjustly terminate her employment and browbeat her into sex work, Lynn claims…

Lynn’s ordeal occurred over two decades ago, but economic forces continue to plunge women into sex-related work today. MSNBC reported that employers across the adult entertainment industry have seen an influx of applicants from young women who say they turned to stripping or dancing because they couldn’t find a job in the field for which they were educated.

The marriage rate increases, as does prostitution.

The marriage rate isn’t increasing so far, but the cohabitation rate is.
