Come give me your thoughts on this - Gay discrimination *longish*
I work for a large retail corporation.
Yesterday I was up there shopping and ran into a co-worker of mine. This co-worker after raising several kids (all adults now) has "come out" and is in a relationship with another woman.
Co-worker's daugher also works there as a cashier and is VERY anti gay
Apparently my co-worker was up there shopping (off the clock) with her girlfriend and girlfriend's son and went through her daughter's line.
The next time my co-worker clocked in to work she was pulled into the office by the manager over the cashiers and her manager as well. She is then told her daughter requested that she not be allowed to go through her line with her girlfriend anymore because it makes her uncomfortable
I think that is complete bullshit. I don't care if it's a family issue, it's still an associate discriminating against someone and that's just no ok at all. If she doesn't like her mom's lifestyle.. fine.. BUT I believe the company (or at least the managers) is supporting discrimination by doing this. I don't believe the cashier has any right to say who can and can not go through her line (unless of course she has a restraining order on them)
