There are some stories that even I won’t cover, and the New Jersey one about a woman who was allegedly fired for being too hot was one of them.
The story was an obvious click-generating troll, and besides offering nothing for the staffing industry it brought out a lot of mean comments from men commenting on the woman’s looks.
So I was astounded to get in my email this morning a notice (the image above) about it from the American Staffing Association (ASA). The association as I’ve known them has always taken the high road on things. It’s a place where leaders in our industry set aside their individual goals in the pursuit of a greater good.
Including the “too hot” story” in an ASA publication in my opinion was not too hot of an idea.
