Advertisements in Australia promote stripping as an exciting way to earn really good money, up to $10,000 per month. In reality, few women earn this much money but they do earn more than they would earn at a typical nine to five job. Ladies who work as topless barmaids and waitresses earn less money than dancers but they earn significantly more than fully clothed waitresses and bartenders.
Australian women who work in busy, upscale clubs where the clientele has money to burn, enjoy the highest income from stripping. Strip clubs don’t pay an hourly wage, stripping is basically working for tips and getting men to buy lap dances. All clubs take a percentage of the money a stripper makes from lap dances since the club is providing the venue and the customers. To a stripper, a good club to work for is one with a steady stream of businessmen that become regular lap dance customers. A skilled dancer at a club like this can earn hundreds of dollars per night.
Many topless waitresses and bartenders start dancing once they see how much money the strippers earn each night. Anyone who works at a respectable club that protects the dancers and treats them soon realizes that stripping is a high-paying job with flexible hours that is ideal for students and single moms.
Working at a good club with few slow nights is not enough to guarantee the strippers salary. Looks do matter; men prefer dancers with firm bodies, lush long hair and an alluring appearance. The better a stripper looks, the more money she will make. Men go to see sexy looking dancers and topless waitresses and they reward the best-looking women with good tips. Attitude also matters; a girl who looks as if she is enjoying herself makes more money than a girl who looks like she cannot wait for her shift to end.
Taking into account these variables. According Job Point, strippers salary in Australia is about $800.00 per week working four six-hour shifts. Topless barmaids and waitresses earn about half this much. A talented stripper at one of Sydney’s premiere gentlemen’s strip clubs will earn considerably more, up to $2,000 per week. Even with house fees, the small amount of money dancers pay at the beginning of their shift for the privilege of working at a club, stripping is a lucrative career that pays nightly, in cash.
