Knife to Their Throats

The number of prostitutes who are free to join unions, or to quit the industry is miniscule. The majority are either held in slavery or under threat of extreme violence, even death.

The fact that this situation is allowed to exist in the present won't be changed by Prop K. Expecting law enforcement to become more vigorous in protecting underage immigrant girls -- now abused by pimps and traffickers -- just because a handful of upper class prostitutes ask them to, is delusional.

Rights on paper mean nothing to these children with a knife to their throats.
