NHS NURSES SELL SEX TO PATIENTS
Scandal rocks government
SEX AND THE CT SCAN: Some nurses are becoming hookers HUGE numbers of public sector workers including nurses and even primary school teachers are selling SEX to make extra money, a shock new report has claimed.
A leading campaigning group, which supports the decriminalisation of prostitution, says more women in public sector roles are working the streets to top up their income due to employers making no allowances for the fact they have children.
The English Collective of Prostitutes released a report comparing sex work with other jobs commonly done by women.
It found sex workers earn significantly more per hour than women working in the other jobs – including those in public sector positions such as nurses and midwives.
Women cited higher wages as their primary reason for entering the sex industry. food and bills have shot up,” she said. “Our rent is crazy as we’re in London.”
“I am really the main earner. So now, one evening a week I work in a flat with another girl. My partner hates it but it means we’re not worried all the time about money.”
She said she felt safe because she is never on her own and the women look out for each other but added: “Of course, I’m more tired at home but we can get the food we want and decent shoes for the kids.”
Christina McAnea, of the Unison, blamed “Tory cuts”.
She said: “It is a sad reflection of the low pay endemic to so much of the public sector.
“If services were better funded, and the jobs and skills traditionally seen as ‘women’s work’ more highly valued, people would not need to supplement their income.”
