It’s been a long time coming but due to many listener requests, I have finally got my hands on getting the legendary Onyx Sachi on the show this week! I am so incredibly excited to have this 2x Miss Nude Westcoast, award-winning choreographer, instructor and stripper to speak about her experiences on the pod.
If you have or haven’t been following on Instagram, this 15-year veteran dancer was fired for speaking up about the mysterious and unfair cuts she spotted on her paycheques. She pointed this out on her story and soon enough, she was let go from the agency. We discuss how she has been dealing with being let go, pivoting the type of work she’s been doing and the doors this experience has opened for her. We also talk about the differences between independent contracting vs. employee status and how that affects strippers on the west coast of Canada. I try and pry as much as I can on her ongoing legal case against the club, civil action that you can take if you’re a dancer if this has happened to you, the ongoing petition and her upcoming book deal. It was an absolute pleasure to have this powerhouse of a dancer on the show – listen in!
