Exotic dancers in Georgia are the latest group of women in the industry to prevail in their claim for fair labor practices. In his 13 page opinion, U.S. District Judge Thomas W. Thrash Jr. determined that these women were in fact “employees” rather than independent contractors based on the amount of control that club owners exerted over them. The owners at Pin-Ups had instituted several fees that it required dancers to pay: a house fee that was due on arrival to cover the dancer’s own shift, a DJ fee, and a house mom fee.
