05-31-08_hooker.jpgFor the second time in six months, a city worker has been arrested for allegedly soliciting sex while on the job. Glendale James, who works for Streets and Sanitation, has been placed on administrative leave after he was arrested on Thursday morning when the “hooker” turned out to be an undercover cop.

In a city where cops beat their citizens, a public worker arranging hook-ups on the clock is not all that shocking. But what is shocking about this story: he allegedly offered $10 for intercourse.

$10 for intercourse? What’s all included for a $10 turn with a trick? Clearly, we’re in a recession if the price of sex has dipped that low.
