Strippers are people, too! Well, people eligible for worker's compensation, that is. On Tuesday, an Indiana appeals court upheld a judgment in which an exotic dancer, Angela Hobson, was awarded over $10,000 for injuring herself while on the pole back in December 2001. (She underwent surgery for a herniated disc.) The court also instructed the Worker's Compensation Board to determine if Hobson is eligible to have her compensation doubled because the owners of the strip club violated state law by not having worker's comp insurance in the first place.

@BAngieB: Completely. They provide a service like any other, they should be well compensated for any injury sustained during providing that service.
Jesus. You'd think that women just grind against stages and shimmy up and down greased-up poles for their own pleasure.
