Coronavirus Takes Toll On Sex Workers In UK, Demand Government Bailout by hbatagarawa: 6:33pm On Mar 26, 2020
Kentish-based sex workers in the United Kingdom are demanding a bailout from the government after seeing their income plummet because of the coronavirus crisis.

The prostitutes, operating under an umbrella of English Collective of Prostitutes (ECP) want sex workers to access the financial support offered to other employees affected by the Covid-19 pandemic sweeping across the world.

They therefore want the government to recognise them and other thousands of sex workers across the country as employees.

The group in a statement says: “Much sex work involves personal contact – exactly what we are being warned against if the virus is to be contained.”

“The virus comes on top of a crisis of poverty, especially among women.”

Since they are taxed, they have the right to make their demand from the government.
