Restaurant's Sexist Dress Policy Leaves This Waitresses Bleeding And In Pain

A waitress took to social media to vent about her restaurant's dress code that requires female servers to wear high-heeled shoes. A photo of her bloody feet after her shift shocked people, and her post began to go viral. Many are calling for an investigation, saying the restaurant's policies are 'archaic and sexist.'

Nicola Gavins is a server at a Joey Restaurant in Edmonton, Canada. She complains female servers are required to wear shoes with at least a one-inch heel, despite the fact that it's unhealthy.

Anyone who has spent an evening in heels knows how hard it can be just to wear them for casual walking and dancing, but being on your feet for an entire shift in heels is akin to torture. Gavins posted a photo of her feet after she got off her shift. Her blood-soaked peds horrified people on social media.

Gavins reports that a friend of hers lost a toenail after a shift from the painful shoes. She says the company's policies are sexist. Men are allowed to wear comfortable shoes and any black clothing of their choosing. Women are forced to endure heels and to pay $30 for a black dress uniform.

Gavin also complains that the unfair company doesn't pay for training shifts, even though they put servers to work straight away.

“I have many friends in the service industry and know loads of ladies who still earn great tips without having to sacrifice their comfort while serving,” one Facebook user responded. “I'll choose to continue supporting those establishments.”

Joey Restaurants chain said that the post upset them, and they said in a statement that they've reached out to Gavins. “There is no minimum height when it comes to our shoe policy. Shoes range from black dress flats, wedges, and heels. For those employees wearing heels, we require the heel height to be no higher than 2.5’,” the statement read.
