R.I. Strip Club to Hold
Job Fair

Times are especially tough in Rhode Island, where unemployment now sits at 10.3%. But the tiny state's strip clubs seem to be finding a market in these lean times. In fact, Providence's Foxy Lady is doing so well that it's holding a job fair this Saturday.

Times are especially tough in Rhode Island, where unemployment now sits at 10.3%. But the tiny state's strip clubs seem to be finding a market in these lean times. In fact, Providence's Foxy Lady is doing so well that it's holding a job fair this Saturday.

Foxy Lady co-owner Tom Tsoumas tells MSNBC.com that his clubs, including two others he's involved with in nearby Massachusetts, are looking to fill around 30 positions: strippers, waitresses, disc jockeys, and bartenders.

"I need more attractive waitresses to go along with the ones I have right now," Tsoumas tells the news site. Apparently, hardscrabble folks in Rhode Island are still finding money to sip beers and stuff G-strings.

"[The strip-club industry has] taken a hit," Tsoumas says. "It's not as bad as restaurants and stuff like that. In times like this, they see to drink their sorrows away."

The economy is so bad in Rhode Island that Tsoumas says he believes people previously unwilling to disrobe in public would now be more amenable.
