Is This Wrong?

A story is reporting that there is an increase in prostitution in the New Orleans area attributed to the large influx of workers rebuilding the place. Here is the part that is just wrong (The Times Picayune):

For prostitutes working the streets of New Orleans, the post-flood era has sparked a boom in business, largely owing to the influx of an estimated 40,000 to 50,000 out-of-town workers away from their families with money to blow, police said. [my emphasis]

Just seems like the wrong choice of words to describe people who have sex for money.
