    Posted: 20 Sept 2007 at 10:31pm

The Dutch city of Amsterdam is to close one-third of the brothels in its famous red light district.
The Wallen, as the area is known in Dutch, is in one of the oldest and most picturesque areas of Amsterdam.
The plan was criticised by the Dutch sex workers' union De Rode Draad.

"We believe that less windows means more exploitation of women," spokeswoman Metje Blaak told the Agence France-Presse news agency.

"If the windows close down, women who are being exploited will be hidden somewhere else where union representatives and health workers can't make contact with them," she said.

Sex Workers have a Union. Eek

Actually makes sense to help protect them.

Imagining what a Teamsters, United Auto Workers and Sex Workers Union Conference might look like.... Whistling

One of the "oldest profession" they say ... and I thought , unionize ... great ... but does that mean the government is now the new pimp?
Well, I guess funds are needed to pay for the infrastructure that sustains the lifestyle we come to expect in the west ... we are all being pimped! And, we might as well all share the burden. "Money does not grow on trees you know".
