Comments from customers is one thing. From a manager is something different.
 
2012-02-15 02:26:01 PM  
Ive only been there once. The staff was nice, and the wifi was free.
I havent been back since I heard about the manager being a dick.
I wont support that.

Why is discussing pornography with a customer or waitress included in sexual harassment?

In that case, if you're not part of the conversation and just offended by it, you should have the right to go fark yourself, and nothing more.

You know..if you go to work in a bra and a mini skirt, you're probably going to have people make sexual related comments to you.

Now, the MANAGER shouldn't be allowed to harass them, no. But I'm sure that's nothing compared to what the customers said.

Given the absolute twaddle that passes for "journalism" on the internet these days, I would like to applaud the scholarly way in which this article was delivered, to wit:

The manager allegedly said to at least one waitress, "Meow, meow. You're a dirty kitty," "You don't know what I'd like to do to you," and "I want to f**k you so bad," among other prurient remarks.

The manager and owner allegedly called one or more of the plaintiffs by sexually derogatory nicknames, including one name that purportedly translates from Greek to English to suggest that someone has inspired a man to get an erection, the lawsuit alleges.

Every single female server I've ever known has been hit on by co-workers and management, and has usually slept with some of them.

Never date a server. fark 'em, have some fun with 'em, but never be in a relationship with 'em.

FTA: The manager allegedly took a straw full of water and put it down at least one waitress' dress, releasing the water and remarking, "I'm trying to get your panties wet," and, "That's how daddy likes it - with your panties wet."

Ugh.

Meh, if that had been all there probably wouldn't have been a lawsuit. Its among a long list of complaints, sure they could have left that one out, but it helps to show the pattern of actions.

"There were requests for sex. There were degrading comments that were made. Something that no woman should have to put up with anywhere, let alone by their manager in the workforce," Roth said.

*sigh*

Look, while I have complete respect and admiration for women, all women, you're working on pretty much the "irish"-like version of Hooters. Part of the job requirements is that you wear skimpy clothes and, I must admit, they look good. So, it should be expected when the clients try to hit on you more often than not.

Now, if someone were to actually grab you, or make a "do you wanna fark in the back of this joint?" suggestion right of the blue, you can always tell them to get up and leave, or refrain them from using that language agai, or -if I were the owner- It would be ok for me to give the waitresses a baton to remind the customers that, while a level of naughtiness is reasonable, this is not a farking whorehouse.

Well according to TFA the customers were fine. You know how it is. People in management don't always treat their wait staff with respect. Usually waitresses dont blink at the occasional lechery from the boss and just retaliate by shorting the till. So this guy must have really been an ass for them to bother filing a suit.

From TFA:

Roth said the 19 women don't have any complaints about the customers, only the managers at the downtown bar.

shiat, anyone who's ever worked in food services or seen the movie Waiting knows that's just how the industry is. Usually the waitresses are bigger perverts than the managers and cooks too.

These girls need to get over themselves or get a respectable job stripping.

The article said that there were no complaints made against customers. it was the owner and manager that were hitting on the employees.

Now, that's a smooth operator. Women just can't resist a guy who spits water at them and refers to himself as daddy while he does it.

At the risk of falling into the "blame the victim" rape defense, I have to agree. They chose to work in an environment where they would be sexualized by being required to wear skimpy outfits, and then they complain when they are sexualized. Honestly, what did they expect, intellectual conversation about the latest broadway show?

So, you started reading the article, but got so indignant by the third paragraph that you had to rush off here to make yourself look like an idiot?
 
2012-02-15 03:56:10 PM  
I saw something like this on undercover boss once. It was Hooters, and the head honcho posed for a job as a management intern at one of the franchises. Turns out the manager who was training him was the kind of asshole described in TFA, and at the end of the show when the honcho revealed himself the scumbag manager basically cried. For appearances sake he agreed to sensitivity training on camera but the wrap notes said he was currently pursuing career opportunities outside Hooters.

At the time I thought, wow, if they just picked that store at random, they might have a problem here.

The Hooters that I infrequent is run pretty well. The guys in the kitchen are all huge ex prison looking types, the manager is a cool guy and I've seen dudes get bounced for just saying rude things to the girls.
 
2012-02-15 03:56:45 PM  
This kind of reminds me of the 'Undercover Boss' episode that had a dick manager for a Hooters.

/I believe he was canned. And damn right he should have been.
