When Carla graduated 10 years ago, she thought her law degree would be a permanent ticket to a high-paying job. But instead of selling her mind, Carla is selling her body. After student loans, debt, a layoff and unemployment battered her bank account, she now finds herself in an almost unbelievable position dancing in a topless bar.
"Did I ever think Id be taking my top off for rent money? No. I was in my mid-30s and had never danced before," said Carla, who asked that we use her stage name and withhold her identity and some personal details. "As a little girl, I never thought to myself, 'I just want to grow up and be a stripper, or, All I ever wanted to do in life is climb in the lap of sweaty stranger and take my top off.'
"But, with our economy the way it is, especially in smaller cities ... you strip or you starve," she said.
Last month, as part of our coverage of Americas economic malaise, we chronicled the story of a young father who took a job as a firefighter in Iraq after he couldnt find work in Miami. Then we asked msnbc.com readers: What crazy things are you doing to make ends meet? This is the second of three reader stories well share. Last week, we wrote about a man who has turned to dumpster diving to keep food on the table for his three children. Now, we tell Carla's story.
Carla couldn't find work in the legal profession, so she's dancing in a topless bar now.

I do, after people ask me to put it back on.
So we get to see her briefs every night?
topless huh ?
So she still works with legal briefs.
I have no college at all, and I make $120 an hour without taking anything off.
She sounds like a f*ckin moron. Pardon my french. But I get all bent out of shape by this. She’s shown exactly who she is. She’s no lawyer. She’s a stripper. End Discussion.
women strip for more than money.....they strip for the thrill of it.
Half naked lawyerasses!
Can she sue her law school?
$50/hour!!! Those broads make $100’s per hour. She must be a real loser! (If you touch me I’ll sue attitude.)
At least she found honest work.
Good for her. She is finally earning what she gets paid.
Oh, yeah? You oughta ask those standing behind you.
The joke around the office used to be that once you get man boobs, they never go away, no matter how much you diet or work out. My shirt's staying on!
if you were making a $100 an hour cash, would you broadcast it?
She reports $50 an hour. These women make 6 figures it’s all in cash. However, they usually have drug, alcohol and other problems. It’s very hard to be a stripper without developing some very serious issues.
oh, come on, either way she going to be a wh-re.
What does she do when she’s gyrating on some fat slob’s lap and an ambulance goes by?
Lawyer vs. Stripper....supply and demand
