Can Strippers Really Forecast a Financial Crisis? 

“When I’m at the strip club, I’m a hustler,” says Palmar, a stripper working in a Florida beach town. “I’m good at getting people to spend money on me.” 

Strippers are struggling right now, several women working in the industry told Glamour. It’s a good thing Palmar knows how to hustle, because lately the clubs have been more like meditation studios than ragers. One Friday night in May, she clocks in at 7 p.m., pays the house fee, and puts on a partially sheer black lace one-piece with a neckline that plunges to her pubic bone. For the next four hours she dances and spends time with customers. Then she changes back into a T-shirt, tips the DJ and security, and leaves. She walks away with $260. Palmar has been working in clubs for more than seven years. A good night for her used to be closer to $1,000, she says. Now she’s getting used to bad nights.
