You Could Get Fired For This

Posted on April 9, 2013 at 10:22 PM
This may come as a surprise, so hold onto your seats. Hooters, the restaurant, may be slightly superficial in their hiring practices. It’s quite possible that you are blown away by that news so, if you are, don’t read the rest of this story.   

Sandra Lupo, who worked at Hooters as a Hooters girl, was putting herself through nursing school when she was pushed out of a job. The 27 year-old is suing her former employer, Hooters, which boasts over 430 restaurants in 28 different countries, reduced her hours to nearly nothing after she returned to work from brain surgery. According to Lupo, the surgery to remove a mass on her brain left her head shaved and a scar that would have been agitated by wearing a wig.   

This incident is an obvious unfortunate one at multiple levels. We are talking brain surgery here! This is major surgery that involves a lot of prep and post work and probably an intense amount of psychological stress on the part of the patient and her family. Additionally, it may have been difficult for Lupo to go back to a job where part of the experience is looking at attractive women who are barely clothed. Of course, all of this is complicated when your regional manager asks you to engage in any behavior that doesn’t support the healing process of your wound, even if it is just wearing a wig.   

Presumably, the most hurtful part of the experience is that she had a relationship with this company and her co-workers. She wasn’t a new employee her even someone who had been employed for a few months. Lupo and been working at Hooters, a business that supports activities associated with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, for the last eight years! Most people would expect loyalty from their place of employment.   

We can’t overlook that THIS IS HOOTERS we are talking about here. This is a company that provides hair and make-up tips for future Hooters girls on their website. This is a company that has a Miss Hooters International Pageant every year. Despite having raised over $2 million for cancer research in the name of a Hooters girl who passed away from the disease in 2006, this company parades women around with their rear ends peeking out of the bottom of their shorts and their boobs hiked up and pushed together.   

Did we really think that they would take the moral high ground and realize that there were bigger issues in the world besides “wear[ing] the right hair color for your skin tone” because “not everyone should be a blonde?” Unfortunately, the only surprising thing about this story is that Lupo expected more. It is totally unsurprising that, instead of rising to the occasion and supporting a long-time employee, Hooters sunk to a new low.
