Yes, even though there are laws that prohibit it, hiring discrimination exists. However, is it fair to discriminate against a qualified applicant because his or her appearance doesn't match the company's brand? One young woman doesn't think so. After going through the application process for a serving position at a restaurant, Jennifer Rogers was turned down for a job... simply because she couldn't fit into the uniform. The Tilted Kilt restaurant, which has been described as "Hooters with a Scottish twist," claimed that its hiring practices are in compliance with all laws and that it has specific guidelines for its servers. The restaurant's servers, called "Kilt Girls," are required to wear tiny costumes that expose their midriffs. Rogers, 20, said she didn't get the job because the uniform's skirt was one size too small. “Why should anyone have to look a certain way to work at a different place?” Rogers told ABC News. “It’s not fair.” What do you think? Does Rogers have a valid point? Or is it fair for the restaurant to not hire her based on her appearance? [poll id="63"] Photo Credit: Shutterstock
