Markets in Everything: Boomtown Strippers Make $2k/Night in ND, "We Make More Than Doctors"



WILLISTON, N.D. (CNNMoney) -- "Forget Vegas. Strippers are discovering they can make ten times as much dancing in the oil boomtown of Williston, N.D.

Kit, a 36-year old stripper who has been dancing for 10 years in places like Las Vegas, Texas and California, first started coming to Williston a few years ago in between higher-paying jobs, because she had friends who danced in the town who were able to hook her up with gigs.

At first, the nightly tips were nothing special, but over the past year -- thanks to the thousands of men who have flocked here and landed high-paying jobs -- she has been making $2,000 to $3,000 a night, about the same amount she would have earned in an entire week in Vegas."We make more than doctors," she said. "Back in the day, it was hard to make $200 a night. It was like pulling teeth. Now you can pull in $2,000 a night."

Even when it's slow, they still take home about $1,500."

Look for the Occupy Wall Street movement to seize positions in Whispers and Heartbreakers for a long time -- in revulsion to what the strippers are earning of course.

Of course. Why else would they do it? :)

Does anyone recall the stories about $25K a day escorts who were hired by Silicon Valley nerds looking for a good time on their vacations? The only place where this kind of money is sustainable for hookers and strippers is Washington.

Yes Ron, why else would they do it?

Also, the strippers' celebration of local natural resource development, via oil wrestling, will only intensify the revulsionist occupation. :>)

I wonder if I put a bra on, can I make this kind of money in ND?

Man, wonder what the hookers are making if this is what you get for dancing naked.

Typical gold rush behavior. Next will come faro houses and horse racing.

It's sex discrimination, I tell you.

BRP: Oh, no, they'll be protesting outside about how the women "are being taken advantage of" and "disrespected" and "treated as sex objects".

Clearly, you don't grasp how the libtard mind works.

Racial abuse is first priority, but feminine abuse is second priority.

About the only way things could be worse is if all the strippers there were black.

True, but in Washington, they call the prostitutes "Senator" and "Congressman".

I hope Dr. Perry is still reading. This is probably an example of local or ND regulation of business.

If I could open up a strip cub in ND, and pay girls $1000 a night, and bank the rest, I would do that, and so would about 50,000 other guys in the USA.

The problem? Almost certainly, ND has laws about strip clubs and alcohol. Thus supply is severely limited.
