A Criminal Justice Professor at Rutgers University stated that a prostitute working at an Asian Massage Parlor in the affluent ares of New Jersey can make up to $8,000 to $10,000 a month. In contrast, an Asian immigrant working in a restaurant or other service jobs in the United States earn between $1,000 to $2,000.
Although police do not keep track of prices, arrest reports show that prostitutes in the massage parlors charge between $200 to $400 for oral sex and intercourse. According to Ko-Lin Chin, the Professor at Rutgers, those rates are much higher than the rates charged in Queens in New York City and Chinatown.
