LAS VEGAS – College is getting more expensive every year and families are having to get more creative when it comes to ways to pay for it.
Savings plans, loans and scholarships are great options but even with those, many students have to work their way through school, sometimes at very unpleasant jobs.
One Las Vegas business is now recruiting your daughters for perhaps one of the last jobs you would want for your little girl.
“Little Darlings” club manager Rick Marzullo recently posted ads outside the strip club in Vegas.
One sign reads, “Now auditioning the class of 2015,” another reads “pay your way through college.”
“We all know the economy isn’t all that great,” Marzullo said. “It’s kind of hard to find jobs sometimes. This is an open door for young women 18 and up to come and make some good money.”
He said the club is always looking for entertainers and with the cost of tuition continuing to rise, more and more woman are turning to the profession to foot the bill.
Marzullo said women working there can make up to $1,000 per night.
“Hundreds that are either in college or have worked their way through college, and like I said, without one penny of debt,” he said. “Not having to take out student loans. Not having to borrow money from family or friends or taking out loans from banks.”
However, not everyone is as supportive.
Some residents have complained saying the sign is offensive and bad for Las Vegas.
Vegas resident Kayla Garninger said, “You could completely change the route of a woman who’s trying to progress and go to college and graduate and make something of herself and see a completely different life, so I don’t agree with it at all.”
But others say it could be the only option for some women.
Resident Julian Loiza said, “They’re consenting adults. I feel like if that’s what they want to do, they have a right to.”
The club said it hasn’t a larger number of young people applying than usual.
The chain has other locations in Seattle, San Francisco and San Diego as well as along the East Coast.
