General County Citizens Profiting Off Sexploitation
Profits Throughout the Community:
Women in brothels typically have to give a large portion, often up to 50%, of their earnings to the brothels.
But they also need to give a percentage of their earnings to taxi cab drivers and limo drivers who bring sex buyers to the brothels, sometimes this goes up to 30% of the transaction. There is also an elaborate tip system where women tip errand-runners, cooks, cleaners, and more, regularly.
The brothels bring in tourists and sometimes employee local citizens, and thereby the communities profit off the system.
