Woman gets brothel offer from job center

AUGSBURG, Germany, Feb. 7 (UPI) -- A 19-year-old German woman said she registered with her local job center and was shocked to receive an offer for a position at a nude bar inside a brothel.

The woman said she started her job hunt at the Augsburg job center in November and was initially excited to receive a job offer last week, until she realized it was for a position serving drinks at a nude bar inside the Colosseum, one of the city's largest brothels, The Local.de reported Thursday.

Roland Furst, director of the job center, said workers erred in sending the woman the job offer without calling her first to explain the job and ask if she was interested.

"We would never offer jobs in prostitution," Furst said. However, he said "we knew the establishment was operating in the red light district."

The center apologized to the woman and said it will no longer be offering positions at the Colosseum.
