(LAS VEGAS, NV) -- In an obvious move to scuttle the Las Vegas Dancers Alliance and a clear-cut case of job discrimination, Bob Proden, General Manager of Deja Vu Showgirls, fired LVDA President, Andrea Hackett, last week ending her six year relationship with the chain. This latest case of discrimination comes on the heels of a situation last month where Deja Vu management refused to let an African American dancer on stage on the weekends because of her color. When asked to explain that policy, Mr. Proden claimed she was being kept off stage because of her weight. The dancer weighs 105 lbs.

Commenting on her dismissal Ms. Hackett said, "This latest move by Deja Vu clearly shows the chain has no problem discriminating against women and people of color. Because their dancers are misclassified as independent contractors they're allowed to extract exhorbinant amounts of money from them in the form of fines, penalties, house and dance fees.

They offer no benefits whatsoever to their dancers, pay no unemployment, no disability, no social security taxes, and fail to distribute 1099 forms to their dancers as set out by law.

In our opinion, this chain should not be supported by anyone who cares about the dancers."

LVDA is calling on a national boycott of the Deja Vu chain until these discriminatory practices are reversed and Ms. Hackett is reinstated.
