Obama's EEOC Goes After Coffee Chain For Hiring Too Many Attractive Women
Boston Herald ^ | May 25, 2012 | Michael Graham

Posted on 05/25/2012 5:52:53 AM PDT by suspects

Some advice to the folks at Marylou’s coffee chain, now under investigation by the EEOC, on how to fight back:

Start laughing.

Back during the Clinton years the EEOC went after Hooters for its alleged hiring bias (we all remember how hard Bill Clinton was on women... uh, let me re-phrase that). Hooters refused to hire men to wear the infamous “orange short-shorts and white tank-top” ensemble. The EEOC spent four years pressuring them to hire male waiters, which would have ruined the Hooters concept.

Hooters tried reasoning and logic. As one would expect when dealing with bureaucrats, they failed miserably. So Hooters turned to anther weapon: mockery.

They put up billboards showing what a hairy, beer-bellied guy would actually look like in Hooters garb. They took out newspaper ads showing a bearded guy in a blonde wig and Hooters T-shirt saying “Come on, Washington. Get a grip.”

It worked. The EEOC stayed just as stupid — still insisting that Hooters was doing something wrong — but it became clear that if they kept pushing the stupidity, Congress might step up and take away some of their power. So the EEOC “quietly ended its investigation,” according to the Los Angeles Times.

Today, dimwit EEOC attorneys in yet another Democratic administration are at it again — this time in Massachusetts. As the Herald reported yesterday, the EEOC “has been quietly probing Marylou’s’ hiring practices for nearly a year . . . grilling the 29-store chain’s pink-clad clerks about their co-workers’ gender, age, race and body type, according to the company.”

Let’s get something on the record. Yes, Marylou’s “discriminates.” Every employer “discriminates.” If they didn’t, I’d be working as a Chippendales dancer.

If you own a business, you...

I think Hollywood should be investigated for not hiring enough ugly actresses. Why shouldn’t unattractive, overweight, non-talented women have a chance at stardom, too?

The EEOC can pursue this kind of BS, but then turns a blind eye when Elizabeth Warren lies about being a minority and uses her phony “minority” status to advance her career. Perhaps if the girls at this coffee chain described themselves as being ugly because their mother’s told them so the EEOC wouldn’t have a problem.

You can take it to the BANK this is another reason the ugly, bitter, hating, socialist, issue-laden EEOC skanks have it in for Marylou's:

Boy if this could not be a better Conservative Red Meat issue over Memorial Day weekend to make those idiots in Washington seem like the most foolish, petty (and JEALOUS) jackasses in front of the vast majority of Americans!!!

Correction: A long time ago Harvard used to discriminate against stupid people. Now they're into diversity instead of intelligence or competence. Remember O'Bozo allegedly graduated from Harvard--although we haven't seen the actual records...

If pretty young women are a problem then...

* When the Obama's get defeated Michelle needs to start...
* "Mcnasty's" with it's caffeine and sugar free Arugula Tea.
* On top of that you get to look @ photo's of Mao, Che' and Castro which adorn the walls of said business...
* Tapes of her play on NPR telling us "Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices; we are going to have to change our conversation; we're going to have to change our traditions, our history; we're going to have to move into a different place as a nation."
* All the Help are Radical Leftist with a chip on their shoulder with the warmth of a Waitresses at Ed Debevik's

Nahh.... While I can make the choice ( before they take it away from me), I'll go to Marylou's....

Any way, a good topic for Rush Limbaugh’s “Open Line Friday”. Which Freeper gets the privilege? I say, burn up the talk show lines on this today. It is a no-win for the Obama Czars. They can be humiliated over this.

So, there's no where else that less attractive women can work?

Does this coffee shop have a monopoly on jobs in the marketplace?

Is the government really just discriminating against one body type over another particularly given that that body type is more difficult to maintain?

Could anyone at a government agency be smart enough to judge that? I’d rather file suit against the EEOC - they don’t appear to have any male commissioners. No American Indians either - although one did look like she has high cheekbones, kind of hard to tell.

They should take out a full-page add that says “The Democtrats and Obama are making us open a new restaurant with fat-ugly chicks- Please fill out this application and apply here”

And see who signs up to work there

Then they can say “we tried”
