Ruby Tuesday Prefers Female Employees

Posted by jakeharris - January 26th, 2015

 

Typically when the public gets wind of a gender discrimination lawsuit the alleged victims are female. Ruby Tuesday is being sued for gender discrimination by men. In the Park City, Utah area Ruby Tuesday offers some apparently cushy and highly desirable summer positions that include housing but the catch is that their advertisement was only meant for females.. Obviously there were many applicants but when a few men were turned down solely based on their gender they were positively livid. Ruby Tuesday defended their stance on the grounds that they were only hiring one gender because of the living situation; they did not want to mix the genders with the living area. According to planadores.org, The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is heading up a lawsuit for the gentlemen, like Sergio Lins Andrade, that were discriminated against asking for monetary compensation, changes to the Ruby Tuesday advertisements, and so on. It seems like if men can apply for a position that clearly stated for women applicants only and win substantial money then who is to stop someone from applying to be a waiter at Hooters where all of the serving staff are ladies? There is always a fine line on what is discrimination and it is up to the courts to decide the outcome of the case.

Pizza Helps Lower the Number of Hungry in Philadelphia

Posted by jakeharris - January 16th, 2015

All over the world homeless go hungry everyday, but the number in Philadelphia lowers a little at a time with the help with the community and at Rosa’s Fresh Pizza. It all started one man a year ago. He was just wanting to help someone who couldn’t help them self. 

It all started with a man who was looking to give a little extra and help someone who needed it. That is when Pay it forward pizza began. Little did he know that in 9 short months since he donated that simple dollar, that he would have encouraged more people to donate a slice of pizza. Rosa’s Fresh Pizza now has over 8,400 slice donations. 

The owner Mason Wartman says that the company used to write on a post-it that a slice was purchased and stick it on the wall, Darius Fisher was seen on his vine.co making a purchase and donating his slice to the homeless; so the homeless could come pull one off and get a slice. But after 500 post-its, it got to be a unmanageable. Wartman keeps track of it all at the register now. So all they have to do is walk in and ask for a slice. 

The wall that was once decorated in the post-its is now covered with thank you letters from the homeless that have accepted a slice . Though it doesn’t sound like much, that place to get a hot lunch everyday has made a change in people’s lives for the better.
