In a case of stupid is – as stupid does, a “topless” bar in the State of New York fired a bartender for being pregnant. The result is the bar will be taken to court in a workers discrimination suit. In my opinion they should lose the lawsuit big-time. However all my opinion and a buck will get you, is the heart-attack contribution of your choice off the McDonald’s dollar menu. What will happen in an actual court of law? Who knows?
The girl is a bartender not the stripper/dancer. I do not see how it will effect her ability to do her job to the best of her ability. Will some guys be turned off, maybe. But others will not. It would not surprise me if her tips actually increased. Okay in my younger years before I turned 29+ I have been known to spend time at the local Quad City strip clubs. We have a lot of strip clubs for a small community. So I do have a little personal experience to base my opinion on. In fact I saw two very noticeably pregnant women actually dancing on the local stages during earlier my clubbing years. One was at a local topless club. The other was at an all nude club. I did not see an exodus from either club when the young women took to the stage. The men and women at the clubs whistled and screamed just as much for them- as they did for any of the other dancers. Plus they both seemed to be doing fine with the tip money. So if pregnant dancers can perform their job to the expectations of the club customers – I do not see how the NY club can claim how a bartender cannot do her job because she is pregnant. Pregnant women have been performing much harder labor than mixing a few drinks since the dawn of time. (Pun Intended!)
