You have listened to a sob story and believed it. They tour to earn money in a different market and will charge what they can, if she believes that she can get more money than Essex in the Newcastle I would think she has not done her homework as the few times I have been there salaries were 30% less than the South.
From memory there were a lot of fat women there too so she does not have a USP.
I agree with you, but my interest in her is a big fat zero. No pun intended.
And as you say, the only reason prossies go on 'tour', is to identify and earn money in a different market. Nothing wrong with that, of course and in a way quite smart. What isn't smart is to charge more in a poorer area than one would do in the South East?!
I'm more interested in this rather odd cheerleading and justification of prossies who bump their rates up, based on some strange notion of overheads? All seems rather fishy to me. There's a fine line between cheerleading and it being something else... it wouldn't be the first time either.
