Ok, I had police as my #2, but you asked about what we thought would be the number 1 challenge.
Did you ever see the story of Honolulu police fighting for the privilege to have sex with prostitutes?
Apparently they are allowed to do so if they claim that they are doing so to make arrests. Obviously this brings up conflicts of interest and lack of integrity among the police force. We can be reasonable assured that it is not just police in Honolulu who are engaging in having sex with prostitutes while arresting men for attempting to have sex with prostitutes.
I also have issues with police and prostitution sting operations, which I view as nothing more than entrapment.
This is why I believe that police are a challenge to sex workers, but at least they have something to lose if they get caught and tried for straying too far away from the law. They may have retirement, benefits, a family or their reputation to lose.
But pimps and traffickers probably don't have any of that to worry about which is why I put them at the top of the list

Ok, so anything else I post in this thread will be from a devil's advocate position.
I just don't understand what would be the point of a sex worker's union? What entity would sex workers be lobbying against?
