Dominican prostitutes protest unfair competition from Venezuelans
The president of the Movement of United Women (Modemu), Jacqueline Montero, complained of the increasing arrival of Venezuelan sex workers who she says operate for lower rates than the Dominicans. Montero said she has received complaints from associates working near the Malecón of Santo Domingo that the Venezuelans are known to accept discounts of up to RD$2,500 on the RD$3,000 rate charged by Dominicans. “The Venezuelans have invaded the market,” she says. She complained that the Venezuelans have lovely hair, are elegant, and well prepared and they now are discounting the rates. Montero urged the Venezuelans to not discount the rates. Montero said that the Venezuelans have contacts in the eastern tourism areas that bring the clients to the city.
While speaking as president of the sexual workers group, Montero is also a deputy in the Chamber of Deputies. She represents San Cristóbal province for the PRM.
