Yahoo – Being a food server isn’t glamorous work, but there’s no shortage of restaurateurs these days who insist on hiring attractive, shapely waitresses dolled up in skimpy outfits as a way to woo more customers. The so-called “breastaurant” boom has spurred scrutiny into how managers decide who is right for the job as well as investigations into possible discriminatory hiring.Jennifer Rogers (above, left) is among those who alleges that she was denied a job because she didn’t have the right body type. Rogers applied at the Tilted Kilt Pub and Eatery in Palm Desert, Calif., but was rejected from job as a “Kilt girl” when the restaurant’s mandated “uniform” didn’t fit, Rogers told KESQ in Palm Springs.”Because the skirt was a size too small, they said that I could not work there,” Rogers told the TV station. “I couldn’t wear the uniform.”
Other similarly themed chains, such as Marylou’s Coffee, a Boston-area chain that employs “bubbly, attractive teens,” has been investigated by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission for possible violations of hiring laws.The local head of the EEOC defended the probe of Marylou’s, even though no one had filed a complaint against the company, through what are known as “commission-initiated investigations,” the Boston Herald reported in June.”It’s possible that applicants or employees may not know they’ve been discriminated against, based on their age or any factor,” said Robert Saunders, director of the EEOC’s Boston office.
I absolutely never understand shit like this. Like why is this news? Yeah no shit this chick didn’t get the job. Umm she’s fat. She wouldn’t get a job as a cheerleader or a model either. Again same reason. Because she’s fat. It would be like me getting mad that the Patriots didn’t give me a roster spot. God just didn’t give me the talent to play professional sports so I became the best fucking smut blogger on the planet. This chick is just too fat to get a job at the Tilted Kilt. Find something else to do. I mean there are 9 billion jobs out there where being hot isn’t a requirement. You picked one that it is. It literally couldn’t be simpler. The world needs ditch diggers too.
PS – I just included that last paragraph because I laugh everytime I read that sentence about Marylou’s Coffee.
“The local head of the EEOC defended the probe of Marylou’s, even though no one had filed a complaint against the company”
If that is not the definition of a guy that has too much time on his hands than I don’t know what is. Good old Robert Saunders protecting the world from nobody in particular like a champ.
