Amsterdam Attacking Sex Workers Ability to Work?

So, Amsterdam has released plans to halve the number of brothers in its Red Light District. But where will the sex workers who work there go? Will they be able to set up shop elsewhere, or will they just be unemployed? Holland is getting rid of the sex windows to make the square more charming and tourist friendly, they say. But what's so charming about leaving hundreds of women without work? Or pushing their work to a less visible place, so they get less business, which is the other possibility. Poverty is not charming. That's all I have to say.
