Bonanni Quoted In S.J. Mercury News Exotic Dancer Suit Story

megan-bonanniPitt McGehee Partner Megan Bonanni was interviewed by the San Jose Mercury News in a story relating to a lawsuit filed in California alleging systematic violations of the California Labor Code -- as 11 former Pink Poodle exotic dancers have taken legal action in an effort to elevate the status of exotic dancers from "independent contractors" to employees. Bonanni, who filed a similar class action suit in Michigan, told the newspaper that strippers "are going to take the crumbs, and work within these illegal conditions" because the club owners have the power to set all the rules. "For the business owners, this has been a great gamble, running their businesses for years without overhead because they're not paying anybody," she said. "Basically what they're doing is having these ladies fund all of their payroll. The club owners have taken a risk, but it's been going on for many years without disruption."
