Wisconsin Woman Sues Strip Club Over Wages

A Wisconsin woman is suing an eastern Nebraska strip club where she dances, saying the owner of Shakers of Waverly has not paid her or other dancers an hourly wage or overtime in the three years she has worked there.

Elizabeth Mays says in the lawsuit filed Thursday that the strip club considers its exotic dancers independent contractors to avoid paying hourly wages and overtime.

Vince Powers, an attorney for Mays, says she and other dancers fit the legal definition of employees, because the strip club regulates when and how long they will work, what they wear, how long they dance. He says the dancers are even required to clean the bathrooms.

Powers also points to a 2001 Nebraska Workers' Compensation Court ruling against Shakers that found dancers are employees.
