And I'm not talking about places like strip clubs. I'm talking more so like restaurants and places that aren't age restricted, like Hooters.
This question popped into my mind because I recently went out with my family to a place that's pretty much the Irish equivalent to a Hooters. And the girls wear this:
There were guys working there too but according to the website they only work in the back, doing the cooking and such.
I also looked up the requirements for employment and you have to pretty much create a persona and act in an audition, where you'll be judged and determined if you get the job from there. I found it odd.
Another thing to mention: it says on the website that most girls who work there are also in college.
I personally wouldn't want to work in a weird place like that. But what do other people think?
Also I really couldn't think of a guy equivalent for this. I don't really think there are any, at least around where I live.

You're right. There's no equivalent where unskilled men can earn that much money.
Where I live they're complaining not about those hooters-type places where its obvious, but rather pretty much -every- restaurant that also serves alcohol biases heavily towards attractive young waitresses who they then encourage/demand where tight dresses and heels.
Some people claim this is an unfair labour violation, that they should be able to dress in slacks etc. like the men would. But the reality is, men are barely hired for these positions, nor are women who aren't attractive. And they have no trouble filling the jobs, because they pay far more then anything else that has such low requirements along with time flexibility.
TBH most of the attractive women i knew in school waitressed at some point, and talked about how it sucked. Of course every else's jobs also sucked, they just didn't pay remotely as well.1

It's fine with me. Many of the girls are aspiring models, many just like the attention and probably are tipped better than more traditional restaurants. It wouldn't be my first choice to dine and won't be applying for a job at one. Nobody is forced to work or patronize the places. As long as it's legal and nothing untoward is going on, I say let the free markets decide. We had a Hooters in my town but it didn't make it. Thankfully.1
