BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- Birmingham residents have voiced concerns over a billboard suggesting young women date a sugar daddy if they're in search of a summer job.

Alexa James works with an anti-human trafficking group and reports say, she wants the arrangements.com billboard taken down because it targets young people and human trafficking is an issue in the area.

Arrangements.com officials say the service is an online dating site the facilitates mutually beneficial arrangements. Men pay a monthly fee to communicate with women using the site.

Officials say membership in the Birmingham area increased in May. An analytics team found that the average age of women joining the site from the area is 22, leading the company to market itself to young women.
The company doesn't plan to take the billboard down.
