Huffpost via Rueters, links us to an article regarding Wet Seal and its alleged discriminatory policy to employ “blue eyed blonde haired workers”. The policy would not only discriminate against white brown eyed brunettes, but more specifically African Americans. The lawsuit quotes a senior official at the female clothing company in March 09 as saying:
after touring 20 stores in the Philadelphia area and Maryland, writing: “Store teams – need diversity/African American dominate – huge issue.”
Wet Seal swears the charges are false. But if these allegations are true, now there’s another retailer not named Abercrombie & Fitch to avoid.
