2008_10_pro.jpgWhile some business owners, like these pizzeria owners in Brooklyn, are facing hard times due to the economy, one segment of the workforce is claiming something close to job security. The Daily News proclaims, "Prostitution has not suffered drop-off despite economic meltdown"--one "promotional model-turned- Manhattan prostitute" explained, "The market is down, but we feel it less. We're still busy... If men are horny, they're going to come here." However, one madam says, "the $1,000/hour girls are just not going to make it" (she charges $160/30 minutes and $260/60 minutes for time with her girls). And a 42-year-old laid-off secretary said she was working as a prostitute to pay for her son's education, "He's trying to get an engineering degree."
