The Flamingo is famed in its Queens neighborhood as a place for lonely men to dance with scantily clad beauties for just $2 a song.
But several former dancers at the Jackson Heights night club allege they were treated like virtual slaves - forced to work hundreds of hours a week without pay and to endure abuse and humiliation by the owners.
Seedy Queens club made us slaves, dancers claim
"It is an outrage and it's shameful the way these women have been treated," said Councilman Eric Gioia (D-Queens). "To me, it's shocking that these sort of labor practices are happening in America in the 21st century."
Outside the club yesterday, bar manager Aridio Herrera was unapologetic.
"We didn't do anything wrong," Herrera, 29, said. "Our customers don't speak any English, so we don't care if it's in the paper."
