Seven exotic dancers are suing nightclubs over lost wages and damages.

The lawsuit alleges three Platinum Plus and Heartbreakers locations in Columbia and Greenville misclassified dancers as “independent contractors”. The women’s attorney says the dancers were forced to pay the club fees and part of their tip money. They were also never paid any wages at all.The lead plaintiff says the clubs treated the dancers unfairly.

Calls to the nightclubs’ attorneys were not returned.
