Stripper Workplace Rights

Stripper From Yahoo! News (through the AP), word from Down Under that Australian strippers and their union have won a significant labor victory.

According to the article:

The country's Industrial Relations Commission on Friday approved new workplace rules for members of the strippers' union, the Striptease Artists Australia.

"We've got rights to have public holiday pay now, which we've never had in our career before," said a union spokeswoman called Mystical Melody. "We've got rosters and set hours. We can't work more than 10 hours a shift."

The award also entitles unionized strippers to overtime, rest periods, meal breaks and maternity leave, she added.

I have to say that that is the best name for a union spokesperson ever.

Somewhere in this story is a joke about "double-breasting".
