My daughter worked at an espresso type stand for several months and enjoyed it immensely. She did not wear revealing clothing or even low cut tank tops. She found that the male customers did not tip her as much as the girls wearing very little, but, the female customers tipped her more that the other girls because she wore o.k. clothing.
One day some Bikers for Christ came through, and they thanked her for wearing something that did not put them in an awkward spot. :) I’m very proud of my daughter. She’s got more sense than me!
So many folks do not have work today though, so we will see some pretty different competitive marketing strategies for a lot of things.These barista stands are a symptom of our economic trials. No one can convince me that women would want to stand in a bikini outfit selling anything if they didn't have to in order to make 19 bucks an hour, or just have a job.
