Petition Ensure sex workers are not excluded from banking services
The Government should review current laws to ensure that people who work in the sex industry can access banking services.
They are often refused bank accounts because of the nature of their jobs, even though it is completely legal and they pay tax. Sex workers also struggle with loans, mortgages etc.
I work in the sex industry and have been refused for 15 bank accounts because of the nature of my job even though it is completely legal and I am registered with HMRC. People should not be discriminated against because they work in the sex industry.
