Retraining Schemes

An interesting retraining scheme in Germany. Prostitutes being retrained as geriatric nurses. It appears that some of the skills and attributes required for both jobs are similar:

Rita Kühn, of the protestant church's welfare programme in North Rhine Westphalia, which is spearheading the project, says of the former prostitutes: "They are in general very good at dealing with people, in addition to which they don't get squeamish and have absolutely no fear about touching or being touched."

They should enlist the help of a few of the Russian girls out here. They spend much of their time with old, wrinkly men, usually Brits.
