Australian Motel Owners in Mining Towns ask single female guests ” are you a prostitute?”

fifo prostituteSingle women booking into some motels in north Queensland mining towns are being asked to sign statements promising not to sell sex from their room. According to the Courier Mail, Mackay motel operator Kelly Davidson said the declaration was a standard rule. Davidson said all motels in the area had received calls from sex workers looking to use the rooms for business.

“We have a rule here that people can’t run business from their rooms.” “We ask guests when they register to sign a form saying that they won’t be using the room as a place to conduct business.”

Earlier this month reports surfaced that fly-in-fly-out prostitutes in QLD and WA mining towns had been making more money in a day than miners were in a week. The Sunday Mail reported women staying in motels or caravan parks in mining towns had been earning up to $2000 a day.

The reports sparked concerns from experts about the potential for violence against women and the spread of sexually transmitted diseases. Earlier in the year doctors reported a spike in the number of FIFO workers contracting HIV and other STDs.
