The owners of three strip clubs have warned their businesses are in peril and they may have to shed all their staff as coronavirus restrictions bite. Glenn and Jenny Nicie, who employ more than dancers and staff at Playhouse Gentlemen's Club, Fantasy Lounge, and For Your Eyes Only in the Welsh capital have issued a dire warning about the state of their industry. They have been forced to close the clubs after only re-opening as a bar two weeks ago, Wales Online reports. All staff, including dancers, were wearing masks and full PPE - while no striptease or dances on a pole were allowed.
They believe they are a forgotten industry amid the pandemic and say that if the 10pm curfew for d venues remains in place then they will have to close. Why does the daytime economy take precedence over the night time?
Under the new scheme it doesn't help me and I can't afford to pay their wages anymore. The year-old, who is self-employed, has been living off her savings since March. She is a full-time carer for her mother who contracted coronavirus in April. Kayla's mum, who is in her 50s, was admitted to hospital where she was in an intensive care unit ICU on a ventilator. She's home now but she's been ed off work. Kayla admitted she has had sleepless nights over money and worrying about paying for food and the bills. You might get an amazing night, you might not. Mentally it can be draining.
You are working long hours and talking to people. You become a therapist — they offload their problems and life on you. Kayla said no-one in the industry could see the curfew coming. She added: "Work have been great with PPE, masks and visors.
We couldn't operate with pole shows or dances — it has just been conversation where we stayed two metres apart and wear masks. Even though we weren't operating as normal we were just glad to work. A lot of us can't work days for different reasons.
It feels like the whole world is going against you. No-one is going to come in here and spend a substantial amount of money in the daytime — it's a late-night venue. Layla has worked in the industry for five years and, like Kayla, she started off as a waitress at the club before becoming a dancer.

The year-old also has to live off her savings and she has had to move into a smaller and cheaper property while she tries to come up with a second plan. There's a few girls who are single mums — it's their only source of income. Every night is different.
Sometimes you get people come in at open, between 8pm and 10pm, and you could do well instantly. Club co-owner Glenn is originally from New Zealand and said he was the first person in the UK to open an American-style strip club in Working with the council we have only just managed to open as a bar. Jenny, 38, believes that if this carries on it will potentially leave thousands of hospitality staff across the UK reliant on universal credit. Jenny said she feels simultaneously responsible and helpless with her staff likely to lose their jobs at the end of October.
They go into a restaurant or a pub. We are seated and we don't work on mass s. Now these girls are being affected because of it and that's not fair," she added. By Katie Bellis.
