Strip clubs feeling the economic pinch

Times are tough all over -- even at Tampa's strip clubs.

As the economy tightens, male patrons aren't as loose with their bucks.

Tampa, Florida, is known for its adult entertainment establishments.

Joe Redner, the owner of the popular Mons Venus club, says his business is down 25 percent.

But it's not just the guys who are feeling the pinch.

Redner says women who need cash are coming to him looking for work.

He says they want to give stripping a try to earn some extra money.
