Contact Admin. As of Wednesday, July 31, The study, which was conducted by the Bahamas Urban Youth Development Centre, surveyed sex workers in Nassau and discovered that economics was the main reason for entering the trade. According to the survey, 70 per cent of female sex workers entered the trade to buy food for their children and 90 per cent of all those surveyed gave paying household bills as a reason for participating in prostitution.
The majority — 85 per cent — said they would change their trade if they could find another job that paid the same amount as they now make on a weekly basis. Due to social and cultural norms, the BUYDC said very often sex workers are stigmatised and discriminated against when seeking healthcare services which pushes them further underground and discourages them from going in to be tested to learn of their HIV status.
The organization found that the majority of the women were school dropouts, unskilled, unemployed and in many cases unemployable; consequently, they lack the ability to retain a job, due to the lack of employability skills, self efficacy and good decision making skills, which has resulted in them having to make a living on the streets.
Just asking, but do you think the newspaper was a wise choice to place this survey? Besides those questioned to file this report, do you think that that is the total number of individuals out of a job and seeking some means of making money?
Look at the headline - Sex Workers: I bet you if you carry out this survey two weeks from now your numbers will have gone up tremendously. There is a time and place for everything, and sadly the newspaper was not the place for this. BUYDC might as well go out and tell a bunch of homeless and hungry individuals, "You know such and such food store back door cannot lock and its known that three homeless people does go in there for grocey.
