Nous avons trouvS que ces travailleurs prenaient souvent des decisions pnidentes entre les choix economiques, notamment le travail k salaire minimal ou le bien-6tre social, ou entre le travail sexuel de maison ou de rue.
Les interviews r6v61aient des modules de resistance a I'endroit des structures Economiques dominantes comparables aux modules d'autres travailleurs des Maritimes. This paper is based on interviews with 60 sex workers in three Maritime cities. We found that sex workei's often made careful decisions between the economic choices—including minimum-wage work or welfare—and between indoor or street-based sex work.
Patterns of resistance to dominant economic structures that are comparable to other workers in the Maritimes emerged from the interviews. This research was designed to "hear" sex workers' own analyses of their lives, theii- work and the world around them. During the thirty- TluB manuscript was submitted in August and accepted in April In this article we focus on their response to "What is the best part of this work? We argue that while "money" may have been the quick answer to what was good about sex work among om- interviewees, this answer did not imply that that these women and men were simply pushed into the trade by economic forces.
Elather, as we shall see, they often made careful decisions about the economic choices available to them—such as minimum-wage work or welfare and between indoor or street-based sex work. These decisions were based not just on money but on the amount of independence each option offered.
Thus, oxxi interviewees were no different them most Maritimers who, in an economy marked by un- and under-employment Acheson, Frank and Frost, , "cobble together a living" among the options available, but do not accept attempts to marginalLze them. Therefore, the tag line "honey" is meant to indicate that what sex workers are resisting through sex work is not simply the risk of poverty or imderpayment in the "straight" world, hut the hege- monic discourses that render sex workers henighted objects of intervention and management rather than economic and political agents.
