Dutch prostitutes are calling the tax authorities to allow them to save money in a tax-free pension fund.

Prostitutes said “they, like footballers, ‘do difficult physical work’ in the prime of their lives and their careers are short-lived,” BBC said.

Under a scheme, footballers are allowed to save €5,000 tax-free a month.

In 2002, prostitution was legalised in the Netherlands.
