Ana Lopes, PhD, President of Britain's General Union (GMB) Sex Workers Branch, wrote "Stigmatising Sex Workers" in the Mar. 2006 Chartist which stated:

“Sex work is legitimate work and problems within the industry are not inherent in the work itself. It is vulnerability, not sex work, which creates victims. Sex workers should enjoy the same labour rights as other workers and the same human rights as other people. Sex workers can only gain the same rights as other workers when the debate is moved from a moral framework and placed in the framework of labour rights.”
