The official human rights watchdog in France is investigating Abercrombie’s practices of hiring employees based on their appearance.
The company has been known to have shirtless models welcoming customers through the door and founder Mike Jeffries has been known to say that he hires good looking people in order to attract good looking people, because he only wants good looking people to wear his clothing.
The Defenseur des Droits is investigating the company’s hiring practices because although looks can be considered when hiring a model, they can’t be when hiring staff and employees. The way a person looks does not determine their sales skills, level of intelligence or ability to do their job well.
Seriously? Normally I try not to throw down profanity to early in the game but honestly, fuck you, guy. Way to alienate the people who you personally don’t find attractive or who don’t conform to society’s beauty standards.
And wait. THIS GUY IS JUDGING PEOPLE ON LOOKS. Please.
