Nilufer Guler is a waitress, but says she feels more like a sex worker at times. On the second day in a new job, a table of wealthy, suited men said they would "buy her" off her manager so she could eat expensive steak with them. They asked if she had an intimate piercing and stared at her throughout their meal. "It's so disrespectful but I couldn't complain. It's a very precarious industry," she says. And she's not alone. Two in five women in the UK say they have experienced unwanted sexual behaviour at work and only a quarter of them reported it, a BBC survey has found . Among men, one in five (18%) said they have been harassed at work. The poll of more than 6,000 men and women, one of the
