In the workplace lunchroom, dominated by a Formica table stocked with a condiment cradle that holds four kinds of hot sauce, Nikki furrows her brow as she fishes into her purse and retrieves her driver's license. A resident of Riverside, Nikki is filling out some paperwork for her new job. "There's a lot of stuff they want to know," she says.
It's been a busy day for the former administrative assistant. "I flew in and saw the doctor before I even got here," she says. Dressed in "business casual," Nikki is an attractive 24-year-old African-American woman with a retro hairstyle reminiscent of Mary Tyler Moore on the actress's eponymous '70s sitcom. Speaking with a slight but charming lisp, Nikki notes that she can't work until she gets cleared by the authorities, and the doctor visit is the first part of that process. In the meantime, she says, "I'll stay here and get some training because I don't know anything. Tomorrow, I'll get my license at the sheriff's office, and then I can work."
Nikki is one step away from becoming a prostitute in one of Nevada's legal brothels.
She's the sole supporter of two small children and her mother, and the work is important to Nikki. "In the Inland Empire," she laments, "there are no jobs at all. I couldn't even get a job at McDonald's right now."
And so she's come to Moundhouse, Nevada, just east of Carson City, where four of the state's 28 brothels are located just off U.S. Route 50, a desolate track that cuts through a high plain of sage and scrub and is known as "the loneliest road in America."

I wonder if she’ll vote for Obama in November?
A Republican president would be blamed for this.
So, where are the kids’ daddy/s?
Just like the late 1800s London. Seems when the economy dives and you let a lot of foreigners in the country that compete with the few jobs...
Hows that Hope and Change workin' out for ya, honey?
Ho should have kept her legs together.
‘No jobs..not even McDonalds’ No excuse. There’s always a job of some kind to be had.
She’s not too good to clean houses, etc.
but, wait....if the economy is so bad...who has the money to PAY them? something’s not adding up.
I vaguely remember a story during Katrina of a lady going north to Memphis or somwhere and she justed started cleaning tables and such in a Waffle House. She walked in a said, “I need a job.” She was hired a day or 2 later. This woman is giving up way too easily.

Sole support of her mother?
Mama can’t work? She’s not too good to take a cleaning job or something.
If she’s 65 she’s drawing social security.
If she’s disabled, there’s programs to help.
Sounds like she’s making up excuses to do what she’s always wanted to do.
What a good example for the children.
The Nevada prostitutes not "backing" Ron Paul will be "fronting" Obama under the new slogan "Hump & Charge"
You're not too far off the mark. The following is from later in this sordid and sad story:
The two gentlemen callers, in a bid to be funny and show their bona fides as staunch Republicans in what's still definitely Reagan Country, introduce themselves as "President Obama" and "Joe Biden."
Yeah, but she'll still have to comp him.
Ever heard of the Chicken Ranch?
When Obama was elected and the unemployment rate was rising, the about-face in the media was amazing; “Obama is helping people SPEND MORE TIME with their families....”
With the thickest kneepads in the world, what might they say about this...?
“Obama is helping her to meet men”....?
