As if to prove that workplace laws exist for everyone, no matter the work being undertaken, a group of exotic dancers in the US have been awarded nearly $10.9m for being unfairly classified as independent contractors by their club.

    Why is this the "lighter side"? If a similar case were put forward by Broadway Dancers, or fast food workers or any other class of workers, the snide, sexist tone of this article would be deemed unacceptable. So why then, is this group of workers being set aside as less than deserving of a fair and equitable workplace?

    There is nothing light about this "Lighter Side" story.

    I agree, this shouldn't be in the "lighter side" I don't see what is funny about exploitation of any worker. I hope the courts takes this more seriously.
