License to Pimp

a film about strippers & labor conditions

the Filmmaker stands outside a strip club where she worked

the documentary’s filmmaker, Hima B., stands outside a San Francisco strip club where she worked. At that time, she & her co-workers had to pay $200 to work a 4-hour shift. If they worked 6 hours, management required they pay $300. The owners called these fees “quotas” and used the piece-rate system to illegally take dancers’ tips, which were earned directly from customers.
