Patty...I thought this went on years...years ago. Where did you hear that this is gouing on now? I can't see this happening, and I've never witnessed it anywhere in Poland.
Bronek, one of the posts, few days ago, Giles postes on the headband, and how
women are made to wear this at work ( I will look for the post) if you do a search
on Giles and all his posts, it shows up. think it was two days ago.
on another forum though, this was bought up and I cant even remember the
companys name, but they still did it. Maybe Fisz or Giles can remember, i am so
mad though, i cant even think straight. Degrading, demeaning, sickening.
I would slap any employer who asked me to do this. better yet, he better know
how to duck:)
thought it was 2004 as well but am so proud of pat for actually taking steps and standing up for what is right, a trashy way to treat anyone!! bravo
I would love to see all of us do this!!
Bravo to all who join me!! :)
apparently, this is from 2004.
an extract from the article...
"Earlier this year, German supermarket chain Lidl demanded that women workers in its Czech Republic and Polish stores wear special headbands during their monthly periods. It said the move was to identify women who could take additional toilet breaks. The policy was abandoned after critical media coverage worldwide."
if its no longer an issue, thats super! but think about it, 2004 is only 3 years ago
thats not a long time. companies can still be doing stupid crap we havent heard
yet for people fearing loss of employment!!
3 years isnt that long, if it was 20 years or so, I would say, ok, it was still demeaning
but someone did something, and they were caught.
I can tell you, a Law should be passed, companies try to get away with so much
even if it was 2004, and no longer a policy with companies, or that company, they
should have been used as an example for all the other companies and served
heavy fines for their unlawful practices of unfair labor and lack of Privacy which
every human being has a right to!!! man or woman!!
like a typical woman you didn't answer my question.
maybe major tom will answer you:)
meantime, I am going to be doing my best
to help in anyway I can my polish sisters and brothers.:)
