At a recent Seattle City Council meeting, chief deputy Marc Garth Green made a comment that shocked councilmembers Teresa Mosqueda and Kshama Sawant: that some of the sex workers on Aurora Avenue have told him they "enjoy" what they're doing.

So Dave Ross and reporter Hanna Scott consult a local expert, Melodie Reece. She's the co-founder of a harm reduction and sex worker’s rights organization in Seattle (POC- SWOP) that hands out snacks, water, and offers services to street-based sex workers and drug users on the Aurora corridor in north Seattle. She has a masters in public policy from the University of Washington.

They discuss the reasons behind the visible increase in sex work on the streets of Seattle in the last six months.
