New York, August 1 (ANI):
One of the six waitresses, who filed a federal sexual harassment suit against a
Sin City strip club, has confessed that she quit her job after she couldn’t
take it anymore.

Single mother Gloria
Fields and five other ex-cocktail waitresses sued the club, its owner and two
managers saying that the bosses at the Bronx joint subjected them to crude
come-ons, physical and sexual abuse.

“I couldn’t take it
anymore,” the New York Daily News quoted the ex-employee as saying.

“The disrespect you’d
get from the managers was awful,” she added.

While Sin City billed
itself as “New York’s No. 1 Strip Club,” Fields said it was a hub of
racial slurs and unwanted come-ons for the female employees.

One manager “used to
come by and play with and touch the girls,” she recounted in her Rosedale
apartment.

“He pulled my shorts
down once in the locker room. I felt like I was being raped,” she said.

The suit, filed Thursday, also accused
management of stealing tips from the waitresses, paying them less than minimum
wage and forcing them to work unpaid overtime.

Fields said she quit several
times, but returned because she needed the money.

Fields, who is pursuing a
master’s degree in social services, finally quit for good earlier this year.

“I worked there because I was a single mom, but
after a while I couldn’t take it anymore,” said Fields, the mother of an
8-year-old son. (ANI)
