Many women in South Africa believe that working in the sex business is the only way to make a livelihood and keep up a reasonable level of living because there are so few jobs available. In part, this is owing to a dearth of employment opportunities in South Africa. Most of them are doing it for the money, but some are doing it because they have no food or a job that will allow them to feed their families. Even though the bulk of them are in it for the money, this is nonetheless the fact. Individuals who are actively involved in the company are included below.
Nearly fifteen (15) women were apprehended on Polly Street in JHD for alleged unlawful prostitution early this morning, according to reports. For illegal prostitution on Polly St. in the Johannesburg CBD, 15 sex workers were arrested, according to the latest news reports (CBD). The fact that these arrests took occurred was first reported earlier today by several credible sources in the relevant sectors.
A number of people in Mzansi have weighed in on this story, which has been making the rounds on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. There were others who begged for the government to provide better career options for the women, while others argued that the police should focus on more vital matters.
Personally, I don't see how being unemployed should be an excuse for someone to engage in prostitution. There are a large number of college grads in South Africa who work at local markets selling their items. When it comes to putting effort in, such women should be the ones to learn from.
