Career day speaker offers stripping option


UPI News Service, 01/14/2005 

Middle school students in Palo Alto, Calif., learned the advantages of an unusual job during a "career day" speech -- stripping.

In the course of a 45-minute presentation to students at Jane Lathrop Stanford Middle School Tuesday, Foster City salesman William Fried explained that a stripper can earn as much as $250,000 a year, and that bigger breasts mean a bigger purse.

"For every two inches up there, it's another $50,000," Fried told one class, according to Jason Garcia, 14.

"Exotic dancer" and "stripper" were listed on a brochure of more than 100 possible career paths that Fried presented to two eighth grade classes, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Friday.

When one student asked why they were included, he replied they were both viable and potentially lucrative for those with the physique and talent.

Parents have complained to Principal Joseph Di Salvo, who said the comments were inappropriate but the controversy has become overblown, the Chronicle reported.

For his own part, Fried doesn't understand what the commotion is about. "Maybe I could have probably spent less time on exotic dancing," he said. "But I think the kids were entertained."
