(Newser) – A federal judge has ruled strippers at one New York City club are entitled to at least the bare minimum—minimum wage, that is. Current and former dancers of Rick’s Cabaret International filed a $5 million lawsuit against the club, claiming labor laws were violated when they weren’t paid minimum wage as employees of the company's publicly traded corporate parent.
