Well, sadly, they can!  Just ask Lauren Odes a New Jersey woman says she was fired from her job after her manager told her to "tape her breasts" down, and now has filed suit against the company claiming religious and sexual discrimination. But that's not the weird part.  The weird part was what she does {or did} on that job.

Former data entry worker Lauren Odes said that after two days with Native Intimates, a midtown Manhattan wholesale lingerie company, a supervisor told her the store owners were not happy with her outfit, suggesting it was too "distracting."

Wait...hold the phone!  Two things come to mind right away.

  1. She works for an 'intimate lingerie' company, and
  2. She works for an 'intimate lingerie' company

Strange as all this sounds it actually gets stranger.  Odes claims that the company owners are Orthodox Jews who were offended by her attire.

So, two things come to mind:

  1. Why would an Orthodox Jew own a lingerie store of any origin, and
  2. Why would an Orthodox Jew own a lingerie store of any origin

What happened to this great country of ours where once upon a day a large breasted woman was expected to work at a lingerie store, and welcomed. Now it will get you fired. Go figure!  Perhaps they will all be staffed in the future with old guys in beards.
