Several years ago, Hooters Inc. was sued by several men who applied for waitress jobs at a Hooters restaurant and who were not hired. The basis of this suit was that Hooters engaged in sex discrimination in hiring. Hooters contended that, though it is a restaurant serving food and drinks, its primary attraction is the Hooters Girls, female waitresses who wear bright hot pants and tank tops and that men waitresses would not fit the image that Hooters had intentionally and legitimately adopted. How should this case be decided? Is this sex discrimination, or are there legal theories that justify Hooters’ position? (125 Words)
