New York Escort Service Owner Says Lockout Has Hurt Business

Sports lockouts hurt business.  That is merely common sense.  Given all the NBA games that have already been cancelled due to the current lockout, businesses are suffering.  Some of the most obvious that come to mind are hotels, restaurants, and retail stores in the area of NBA venues.  The lack of games is also hurting sports writers, radio shows, online apparel stores, and a number of other businesses and groups of people that we may not think of right away.  Heck, even escort services are taking a hit.

A CNBC report that was published on Monday detailed some of the struggles that small businesses have faced because of the cancellation of NBA games.  Perhaps the most interesting of the bunch is a New York escort service.  A man named Henry (do we need to explain why he only provided one name?) who runs the service said business is down 30 percent.  Henry said he charges between $400 and $4,000 an hour, depending on the woman, and that not having players and other high-profile fans in the area on a regular basis has hurt business.

“There are replacements but they aren’t as consistent and not nearly as high paying,” Henry explained.

Everyone’s gotta eat, you know what I mean?  Bart Scott says there are plenty of strippers to go around in New York and guys like Dennis Rodman stop by to live it up from time to time, but it’s all about consistency.  We have people living with their parents and prostitutes who need to make a living.  It’s time for the madness to stop.

Chest bump to I Am a GM for passing the report along.
