Kaffee Klatsch

by Michael Walsh

Today’s exercise in blind, idiotic, malevolent federal intrusion into our lives comes courtesy of the New England–based chain of Marylou’s coffee shops, which is being “investigated” by the Nosy Parkers of the EEOC for all sorts of “discrimination”:

There’s a brouhaha on the South Shore. A popular coffee chain known for its bubbly, attractive teenagers is facing a federal discrimination investigation.

In a letter FOX 25 has obtained from a source, the president of Marylou’s Coffee – Marylou herself – has fired off a scathing response to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s investigation, and asks Sen. John Keenan for help.

Marylou Sandry started the coffee chain in Hanover. It’s now spread to many locations in Massachusetts and more in Rhode Island.

It’s known for its pink branding and attractive staff. That is the problem.

The EEOC wants to know if only young, attractive women are employable at Marylou’s. Now they’re looking into the company’s job applications, talking to employees about their co-workers age, race and body type, as well as questioning company managers.

There’s a news story at the attached link. But here’s what the feds are complaining about:

Unreal. But inevitable, once the nation started heading down the insane, coffee-bean-counting path it’s currently on. And it won’t stop until everyone’s encased head-to-toe in either a hazmat suit or a burqa.

The Corner

The one and only.
