WTF, I always thought they were exploiting men and their inability to use their higher-brain functions when around such women, readily handing out money in a fantasy that the "show" could lead to something more.exploiting its scantily clad waitresses by subjecting them to leering and groping customers.
As for the T-shirt Future Hooters Girl is tasteless, come on...kids *can* be exploited, and that just smacks of wrongness. But then who are you gonna sue? The parents bought the damn shirt.
I say that in jest and to make the point that there's really no escaping it. All else being equal, the more attractive a person is, the more opportunities they will be given whether they want to "capitalize on their sexuality" or not.
More attractive people earn more money - Apr. 11, 2005After variables like education and experience are factored out, Fed researchers said the "beauty premium" exists across all occupations, and that jobs requiring more interpersonal contact have higher percentages of above-average-looking employees.
While the waitresses at Hooters may display more overt sexuality -- I'd say that the trend generalizes across the industry as a whole. All else being equal - or even not - most any restaurant will hire the more attractive candidate. It may have no impact on the ability of the server to do the job, but it certainly has an impact on customer attitudes. The Hooters model limits their business because its so polarizing - hence these lame attempts to make it more "family friendly" whilst trying to maintain its mainstay clientele.

Sexism definitely still exists. It happens every all the time.
This is not one of those times.
One of you will end up here next!
It's a great ploy, isn't it - toss on a tight shirt and a short skirt, serve some **** food - and you have a faithful following of men, their women and children, who will cleave their selves to your - service - forever . . . with a $20.00 tip at every turn.
Yes, but boohoo - it's the women being exploited and netting a massive profit. What would their exploitation bring if working at Applebees? No where near some a happy tip and smiley faces.
True - what are you going to do? I've found just as many 'tasteless' shirts at Walmart. . . and I've seen just as many handmade tasteless things as well.As for the T-shirt Future Hooters Girl is tasteless, come on...kids *can* be exploited, and that just smacks of wrongness.
