We worked six days a week and twelve-hour days. We mostly had to serve thirty-two to thirty-five clients a day. Weekends were worse. Our bodies were utterly sore and swollen. The bosses did not care…we worked no matter what. This included during menstruation. Clients would become enraged if they found out. The bosses instructed us to place a piece of clothing over the lamps to darken the room. They did not protect us from client beatings. Also, at the end of the night, our work did not end. It was now the bosses’ turn with us. If anyone became pregnant we were forced to have abortions.
