If street work doesn’t require a license, how do you know who is working as to mandate testing? How can you conduct checkups of the premises when there is no “base” to check up on?
How do you ensure the girls aren’t being pimped out if the individual doesn’t apply for a difficult to get license that requires rigorous vetting on behalf of themselves? Without regulation how can you ensure employees aren’t forced to work inhumane hours?
I’m not an expert, but I know it’s far more difficult ensure safe working conditions are upheld with Street prostitution.
Brothels aren’t perfect, but they’re better than the alternative paradigm the US has wherein pimping, sexual violence, assault, STD’s and murder aren’t all that uncommon when encompassing this paradigm
It’s a lesser of two evils relative to locking up the poor girls who have perhaps been trafficked for upwards of a decade due to lack of regulation and subsequent criminalisation.
