Politico: What We Learned from the Nation’s Only Stripper Union

Dancers at a North Hollywood topless bar voted to be represented by Actors’ Equity Association last week, setting them up to be the only unionized strippers in the U.S., according to the union.

But beyond the headlines, the Star Garden case might have also revealed something about the NLRB: the agency’s thinking on factors for worker classification.

In a request for review of the election, the company argued in part that the dancers were not employees, but rather independent performers leasing space in the club. The review was denied by the board.
