Representatives of the sex industry in the Netherlands are concerned about the obligation to close brothels in Amsterdam three hours earlier. In their view, this will lead to the flourishing of illegal trade, writes NL Times.
According to industry representatives, the need to finish shifts at 3:00 p.m. instead of 6:00 p.m., as was the case before, is leading to a drop in income. The “moths” believe that the allotted time will not be enough to work with customers.
“Until midnight people walk around and watch, but they don’t pay,” said the red-light district worker.
The girl said that in summer people walk the streets until morning. Customers start visiting establishments after the bars close. The Red Light United union has said that the reduction in working hours will lead to industrial workers starting to steal and blackmail because girls will work illegally.
