Nicola Gavins, a makeup artist in Alberta shared this photo of her friend’s blistered toes, cut and bloody feet after a night of working in heels.
Her post states:
Their policy is still that female staff wear heels unless medically restricted, my friends feet were bleeding to the point she lost a toe nail and she was still discouraged and berated by the shift manager for changing into flats (specifically told that heels would be required on her next shift the following day).
In addition, the female staff have to purchase a uniform/dress at the cost of 30$ while male staff can dress themselves in black clothing from their own closets (and are not required to wear heels).
Sexist, archaic requirements and totally disgusting policy.
