Work your butt off or quit

Some Hooter girls are upset with the new uniform change, but they should’ve been self-aware.

Hooters girls got a new look. Those tiny shorts that they used to wear, just got even shorter. Some girls are voicing their concerns all over social media. I don’t want you to think that I am okay with sexualizing women, however, I believe that they know what they signed up for. If they have a problem with it, then quit.

Nine times out of ten, the reason people go to Hooters isn’t for the food. The Hooters girls’ attire is supposed to attract tips. The fewer clothes they wear the more tips they get. I don’t disagree that these smaller shorts are not a good thing for women, however, I think they can switch jobs if they do not approve of the conditions.

Obviously, their “uniforms”, if you will, are meant to get them larger tips. If they are not fine with having to wear underwear as shorts, they can apply to another restaurant that makes good tips as well. It isn’t extremely hard to find a job that makes good tips without having your butt hanging out for the world to see.

Some Hooters workers might say they need the money. If they need money, they shouldn’t complain because they will for sure be getting lots of it in these new shorts. If they are complaining about being sexualized, then work somewhere else. They can easily make tips at other restaurants if that’s what they really want.

Almost everywhere is hiring right now. You can drive down the street and see almost 10 different signs saying that a business needs workers. Anyone can easily get hired anywhere. If Hooters workers aren’t happy with wearing tiny clothing and getting sexualized by men, then go find another job. It’s as simple as that. They applied for the job knowing that they were going to have to show off some of their body parts. If they think that is bad, then they have the ability to change their situation.
