There are some interesting clues sprinkled throughout this chapter:
(1) It's been at least two years since Ogura and Misako had sex.
That means she's been sexually frustrated and possibly looking
for some excitement.
(2) Misako seems to be well-established at the brothel, with her
name and picture on the directory and everything, even though
she supposedly started work that very same day.
(3) Misako also seems to be well-experienced.  "When the hell
did she learn all these kinky tricks!?" (page 10, panel 4)

I conclude that Misako lies to Ogura when she says she quit her
"other job" (page 6, panel 6).  In fact, she's been working at the
brothel for many months. She never had another part-time job.
More to the point, she actually enjoys being a sex worker,
something she slyly hints at when she says: "I'm gonna do my
best! I'll suck as many dicks as I can… just for you, honey!"
(page 17, panel 4)

After reading your thoughts, I totally agree with you on your analysis of the situation.

Many of the chapters on Fakku reward
a close, careful reading. That is one of
the reasons I love eromanga.

If my theory is correct, it would explain why Misako doesn't
seem fazed at all when Ogura's boss suggests she should
go to work at a brothel; she's already working there.

Personally, I see the other gentleman on Page 1 not so much as Ogura's "boss" (in traditional sense) but as the *clears throat* "financier" for Ogura's venture; maybe even a loan shark. In all likelihood, he was hoping for Ogura to fail to meet his obligation, then to reveal that his wife would *a-hem* "go to work" as a result. If the financier had ties to the Japanese underworld ... BRRR!

MHM-Dono:
I heartily agree with your analysis.  Only someone connected with
the Yakuza would offer a job at a "nice brothel" to a woman whose
husband is in financial trouble.  I should've noticed the fellow's light
tie and black shirt, which is a dead giveaway.  He definitely has the
look of a flashy gangster.

I rather carelessly picked the word "boss" out of the air because
I was focused on the question of Misako's tenure at the brothel.
Imagine the loan shark's surprise when he discovers Misako is
already a longtime sex worker.

Who in their right mind wouldn't just say "Please don't work here."? smdh

And who in his right mind with such a fine wife AND a huge debt would go to a brothel?
H-Connoisseur +3 points

It's a psychological thing.  He feels compelled to go to
a brothel because he's fretting about the sort of sleazy
things his wife will be doing with "foul old men," and he
wants to see for himself, if only to confirm his worst fears.

The biggest WTF is that he hasn't had sex with his wife in _two years_. Who does that who isn't at retirement age? That means that he didn't even manage to sleep with her for their _anniversary_. This guy is just screwing up life in general.

Cultural Note:
In Japan, sexless marriages are not unusual, for a variety of
reasons, including lack of privacy, lack of quality time (due to
overwork), and lack of affection.  A lot of Japanese pair off in
loveless marriages-of-convenience in order to improve their
job prospects with companies that discriminate against
singles (who are considered immature and undependable).

So the fact that Ogura and Misako haven't had sex in two
years is not unusual within the context of Japanese society.

By the way, the general lack of privacy is the reason why
love hotels are so common and popular in Japan.  Often,
it's the only place where even married couples can enjoy
some uninterrupted quality time.

Wait... is her first customer after him the guy from the start in disguise?
H-Connoisseur +3 points

No, Misako's next customer is merely a fat, homely
nerd, which makes Ogura feel even worse. There
is definitely some dark humor in this scenario.

UPDATE AND REVISION:

50 / 50

On 02/27/19, I gave this chapter a solid 40/50 rating, but in the days
that followed, everyone had so much fun poring over the details and
analyzing the story that I decided to raise the rating to a top-tier (and
well-deserved) 50/50.

And I no longer believe Misako is lying to Ogura when she says she
quit her other job to work at the brothel.  However, she deliberately
neglects to mention an embarrassing little detail---that she switched
jobs months ago---thus allowing her husband to believe she went to
work at the brothel that very same day.  She does this because she's
trying to shield him from the revelation that, far from being a virtuous
wife, she is, in fact, a longtime well-established sex worker who really
enjoys her job.

Please note, Misako's not lying by omission because Ogura never
specifically asked her WHEN she switched jobs.  So she's telling
the truth---as far as it goes.<br>

Cultural Note:
In Japan, there are special "escort services" that employ housewives
who have fallen into debt (or, as in this chapter, whose spouses have
fallen into debt).  Some of these women are middle-aged or older.

Once a woman pays off her debt, she quietly quits the escort service
and assumes the role of a respectable housewife once again, putting
the experience behind her as if it never happened, thus shielding her-
self from self-reproach---which is very sensible.

Cultural Note:
Misako works in a "fashion health place" (page 3, panel 1).
From the Wiki (paraphrased):
"'Fashion Health' is a form of massage parlor that circumvents
Japanese anti-prostitution laws by offering a range of services
that stop short of sexual intercourse.
"Fashion-health clubs can be found in all large cities in Japan.
They're easy to spot because of their bright flashing lights and
garish décor, with pictures of their so-called masseuses posted
near the entrance."
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Types_of_prostitution_in_modern_Japan

Although it's against the rules, Misako offers intercourse
as a special favor to Ogura (page 14, panel 4) because
he's her husband and he's feeling low.

This chapter is basically a poignant sex farce, with Ogura as the
butt of the joke.  His wife has clearly been working at the brothel
for a long time (and enjoying it), but he can't figure it out, either
because he's clueless, or because he's deep in denial.

Got the GFE with his wife.

From what I've read of the unsatisfying sex lives of some married men, they'd take that.

This chapter needs four NEW tags:
"Brothel"
"Prostitution"
"Housewife Hooker"
"Sumata / Pussyjob"

Sigh ... I personally hope husband-kun finds a solution to his debt problem other than having his cute wife work in a brothel, otherwise, he might be driven to have a one-way encounter with Truck-kun, ... or more final, Train-kun (if you know what I mean).

Another reason to call for the 'Facepalm' tag.
H-Connoisseur +2 points

After some deep analysis, we now know that Misako already
found a solution some time ago.  She seems to be genuinely
fond of Ogura, but he's a complete loser, as a breadwinner
and as a bed partner, so Misako is making the best of things
by working at a brothel, where she receives sex and income.
Like most women, she's more pragmatic than romantic.  And
she seems to be happy as a sex worker (which her husband
is loathe to admit to himself).

This chapter gives us a realistic glimpse of
the "fashion health" sector of the Japanese
sex industry.

Could very well be another case of 'Art Imitating Life' where "... the names have been changed to protect the innocent."

That's...quite the title. Certainly doesn't really leave much to the imagination regarding the content.
Debt stories can get pretty depressing, especially in Hentai. She's doing it for him, and the part where he started to tear up after realising what his wife is being forced to do to help him, and yet smiles and assures him she'll do her best...just makes it that much more sad.
"I'm not gonna cry"?
Well, crying to let it all out can be healthy sometimes. But really, the important thing right now would be doing everything you can to shorten the amount of time she has to work there.
