The French Sex Workers Protection Association asked President Emmanuel Macron for help in connection with a drop in income amid the spread of coronavirus infection.
The head of state is asked to create a special fund to prevent the risks of sex workers who are unable to work in quarantine, reports Le Parisien.
“An emergency fund should be created that can replace income for the period of the lockdown,” the letter of the Federation of Red Umbrellas, which is involved in protecting the health of workers in the industry, said.
Some sex workers in France have the status of self-employed, but the majority of workers in this field cannot apply for cash assistance from the state.
