One peculiar thing about Dallas is the fingerprinting requirement. I briefly mentioned it last September when I worked a short trip there before the Exotic Dancer MBA event. Like many cities, Dallas requires entertainers to be fingerprinted and have a background check. However, unlike other cities… the process is not completed by state authorities but rather by a private agency.
There are pros and cons to this. Since it is not performed by a government agency, the entertainers’ identity is preserved somewhat. It is not a business license, just a means of age verification that is disclosed solely between the agency and the club. This creates one of the cons though: the background check for one club doesn’t count for another club. Each time an entertainer switches clubs, she has to pay ANOTHER $50 for the background check if she is in-state (plus $50 for an out-of-state check if she aren’t a Texas resident.)
You would think that would cut down on club-hopping, but it didn’t seem to. I visited several clubs in Dallas and saw familiar faces from the shifts I worked at The Spearmint Rhino and The Lodge.
