Hooters Girls Are Too Fat? Obesity Discrimination? What Does Michigan's Special Protection for the Obese Mean for American Business?
Bad news, America, the obese are starting to win special protections. Nevermind most obesity is the result of habitual improper eating...
Hooters girls say they were fired (in an at-will state) for being too fat! Michigan, with its special protections for the obese, says it's against the law, but will that actually hold up in court??
And what does this mean for American businesses? Do you have the right to market your business as you see fit, especially if your employees are your company's greatest marketing, eh hem, asset? Nobody's going to Hooters for the wings...

It's a slippery slope. What next? Will Michigan pass special protection for people who dress like slobs and have poor hygene too?
