It’s easier in a bad economy, but now jobs go wanting. BSC Management, along with a group of other adult clubs, hosted the job fair at the Holiday Inn in Fisherman’s Wharf to look for staff like bartenders, door hosts and entertainers.

“Being an entertainer is an honest living,” one job seeker said. “It’s legit and we’re not doing anything we’re not supposed to be doing.”
Kiana came from Tracy, Calif. to attend the fair. “Unfortunately my parents couldn’t afford to put me in ballet so I could be in Julliard,” she said. “I have a nice body … why not show it off?”
