Emperors Strip Club In Riviera Beach 'Now Hiring The Class Of 2012,' According To Sign (PHOTO)

Palm Beach County high schoolers who don't want to work a typical after-school retail job apparently have an option with clear heels and their parents' eternal horror.

Emperors Gentleman’s Club and Steakhouse in Riviera Beach recently posted a sign declaring they’re "now hiring the class of 2012", according to a sharp-eyed Reddit reader.

(View the sign below.)

When reached on the phone, an employee at the strip club told Broward New Times that the sign was “more or less a joke,” though the club is in fact seeking applications.

But hiring high school hasn't always been a joke at parent company South East Showclubs. Their Emperors Club location in Tampa was sued by a woman after her 16-year-old daughter was hired as a nude dancer, and even featured in Night Moves magazine after using a fake ID to get a job.

The teen was also reportedly featured in advertisements for the strip club and videotaped at work.
