PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Here's one job opportunity you won't need a new wardrobe for.
Hoping to take advantage of Rhode Island's floundering economy, owners of the Foxy Lady strip club in Providence plan to hold a job fair on Saturday. They say they're looking to fill around 30 positions, including strippers and waitresses, at that club and two others in Massachusetts.
Co-owner Tom Tsoumas says people are desperate for work, especially in Rhode Island, where the unemployment rate stood at 10.3 percent in January.
He hopes that some who would have shunned strip clubs in a strong economy might now consider shedding their clothes — or at least working as a waitress or bartender.
Tsoumas says he expects to collect as many as 150 resumes from "very responsible and competent people."
