PghLesbian commented on the blog post Is it 2011? Applebee’s server: I Only Got Black Tables. Plus a Q of the day
With regard to the Applebees case, here in Pittsburgh a former employee is suing the Panera franchise for racial discrimination among other things. Posts have been popping up all over the place with anecdotal accounts of a lot of sexism and racism in that the franchise owner wanted “cute young white girls” to staff the front end. My impression of the Panera I frequented the most often wasn’t quite that extreme, but I attributed the preponderence of young white women to the nearby universities, one of which was recently all female. Now I’m paying attention.
