Like many places, the D.C. government created an online job bank (dcnetworks.org) to help link job-seekers with employers. Unlike many places, D.C.'s job search website includes an opening for an "exotic dancer."

Update: The D.C. Mayor's office says the employer that listed the exotic dancers' jobs has voluntarily agreed to take the posting down. The mayor's spokesperson noted that dcnetworks.org is a user-generated website, adding that Department of Employment Services staff does vet the postings and did vet the exotic dancer posting, but allowed it through because there's nothing illegal about the jobs.

The job description cites strip and pole dancing -- that's naked and partially clothed, both solo and in a group, it specifies. Pay is based on experience.

The employer listed is the Stadium Club, which bills itself as an upscale gentleman's club in Northeast D.C. No one at the club would comment on the posting.

Strip clubs are legal and the Stadium Club is listed on the website as a preferred employer.
