How much do strippers make?
Well, that depends on who you’re asking the question.
It all comes down to experience, location and beauty, ofcourse. I don’t really have an objection at women working in a strip club, but the clubs that make them work, against their favor-sometimes, gets on my nerve. A couple of coke, beer, vodka or wine of your choice and a girl to play with you for a while at under $100; Yes, that’s what the average strip bars take away from a normal customer.
That’s a different scenario. Several strip clubs are full with people all the time in some major cities around the world through a week and the bills sometimes stand at over $1000. We really don’t have an actual data on how much are strippers paid, but we surely have a run down at different things. Here it follows…
An Atlanta-based stripper who goes by the name ‘Menagerii’ in Reddit discussed her financial details during her work as a bar dancer and stripper. There’s an interesting fact; Strippers are not paid on hourly rate. Menagerii confirmed that they work on flat rates and take percentage from the tips they get. She was paid a flat fee of $34-50 per DJ shift and had to share 10% of her tips to the club. And, she worked around 6 hours on a shift, but had she worked double, she should have paid twice the flat rate ($70-100) to make double of what she’d want to.
Cutting it short, Menagerri did not work all day, but the day she did, she’d come home with $500-$1500, and that’s a pretty good earning per day, right? She also said that she’s tipped to $400 at max, but the lowest of what she could get in tip can be a dollar..or nothing.
When she worked double shifts, she bagged $3345 on a single night, which she believed was outrageous.
Here are a few things that you’d want to know about strippers, their payments and the strip club industry-
1. Most strippers are not paid to dance. In fact, strippers pay to dance and try to make the money out of it.
2. They are not paid in hours; they’ve a flat rate payment if they are hired as a regular stripper.
3. Most of the money they make come from the tips they receive from customers.
4. Strippers have their own union- The Exotic Dancers Union, or other groups like We are Dancers.
Reliable statistics about strippers’ salaries are a hard thing we can find. However, there are several reports that claim dancers earn somewhere around $70,000 in UK while in New York clubs, they could earn around $1,000 a single day.
After all it’s about how pretty they look and how well they can satisfy the customers! An exclusive one-to-one show or a lap-dance or a private show is what could make them a lot.
Let us know if you have a friend who’s a stripper and have details about her earning. We surely would like to keep up with you in this regard!
