Two dancers at a Knoxville strip club have filed a lawsuit against the club’s owners for taking cash paid for certain services, billing dancers a “performance” fee and taking cuts of their tips, Knoxnews reports. The women are claiming that the environment constitutes exploitive business practices, while the club owners don’t deny any of the allegations, but claim instead that dancers aren’t employees with rights to wages and labor protections.
