TRIBECA — A TriBeCa strip club is being accused of skimping on wages for its non-dancing employees.
Bartenders, waiters, porters and and other workers at New York Dolls on 59 Murray St., along with those at two Midtown clubs run by the same owner, Private Eyes and Flashdancers, claim that they're being stiffed wages, overtime money and work breaks at the three locations, in a class-action suit filed last week in Manhattan Federal Court.
According to the suit, named plaintiff Enrique Arana claimed that while working upwards of 65 hours a week, he earned a fixed, $75 per day salary at club Flashdancers, regardless of the overtime he worked as a porter, from 2011 to 2014.
When he worked at TriBeCa's New York Dolls, he earned either $75 or $85 as a daily rate, while working 55 hours a week, with no breaks to eat and was never given a pay stub, according to the suit.
The suit also claims similar unfair wage practices are used at the Private Eyes club.
The three clubs are no strangers to claims of unfair pay — last year, the clubs agreed to pay a $4.3 million settlement to dancers, after they sued over wage issues.
The club did not immediately return request for comment.
