First they came for Chick-Fil-A. Now In-N-Out. The attack on Christian businesses continues.

I have noticed that all of the employees at In-N-Out all speak good english. That must be the problem.

I have eaten at In-N-Out burgers since the mid-70’s. I have eaten at the ones in So Calif, N Calif, Bakersfield, Calif, South Reno, Nevada & the one in Carson City, Nevada.

I have seen many black workers at these restaurants.

They were cheerful, fast, and very efficient at what they do. I NEVER got any impression that they were being ‘discriminated against’ or unhappy with their jobs.

I have seen many older workers at these restaurants.

IIRC, the one in Auburn, Calif had one of the original In-N-Out workers they ever hired. He was now obviously over 65 & was one of the people who ‘made the place’.

He was fast, cheerful, and didn’t care if he was at the register or cleaning tables & refilling ketchup dispensers. I loved talking to him whenever I was there.

The Double-Double at In-N-Out is the best meal value you can get, IMO. The fries are cit right there & made fresh as you can get.

IMO, this kind of legal action is totally bogus. I sincerely hope that this suit gets thrown out of court.

IIRC, In-N-Out is not a chain-—they are entirely owned by FAMILY members. As the kids grow up & marry, another restaurant gets opened up.

You apply for a position. You don’t get hired. It must be racism.

Are companies required to hire every single black applicant who ever applies for a job? Is that what these lawyers are saying?

This country needs to change at least one thing, which will solve or prevent so many lawsuits - the loser pays winner’s attorney fees and all damages due to the lawsuit!

On my way to Vegas I stopped at one 100% manned by people of color so I think the lawsuit is BS.
Our order was totally screwed up by the way which is NOT typical and the people that were supposed to taking orders were trying to hook up dates instead at the counters.

IMO if this were the reason to not hire certain people I could kind of understand it. SORRY!

I’m sure they have their own personal reasons but you can’t be truthful about it, lest you be called a racist. The behavioral stereotype that emerges comes from years of experience but can’t be taken into consideration due to the fairness doctrine even though from a time, cost, and efficiency standpoint it is the profitable to hire a better candidate or the job. It’s fairness vs reality. There are exceptions to the rule in every case though.

I have eaten at In-N-Out burgers since the mid-70’s.

Hear, hear!

I remmber a high school buddy who was working at In 'n Out back in about '78 making $7.25 an hour...good money back then for a fast food place or any other first entry job for that matter.

The times have changed greatly but their burgers are still top notch.

Double Double with grilled onions is still top on my list!

Kind of miss Tommy's though ;(

I can only imagine the sales per square foot at InO compared to say Mikey D or BK. Besides the quality of the food (cost is comparable), the staff and cleanliness is a pure pleasure by comparison.

That Auburn store was a Godsend. I took my family there often.

This is a shakedown. I’m sure they can defend themselves. Disney is legend for not settling lawsuits.

Maybe some day they’ll come to Boise. We got our first Chick-fil-a at BSU last year. Now there are three new Chick-fil-a restaurants under construction.

Isn't it racist to even say "persons of color"?

Stupid libs and their lawsuits!

This isn’t about racism. It is about a shyster who wants a 2013 Mercedes and a family who needs to pay off some bills with enough left over for a dinner.
