Is this dress code fair?

Saggy pants are banned!

At least two Houston-area McDonald's have banned low-slung, baggy trousers. "The signs say:
Pull your pants up or don't come in.
Try to have some decency and respect for others.
No one wants to see your underwear

Saggy pants are the most commonly targeted piece of attire. In Texas alone, entire malls have banned people from wearing them, as has the Fort Worth, Texas, public bus system. Recently, more than a dozen Houston-area apartment complexes have instituted a fine of $100 or even eviction for renters who wear saggy pants on the properties.

Do you think people should be banned and possibly fined for wearing saggy pants?

Do you know anyone who dresses like this?

It's not a law it's a rule that a business has...which means you don't have to follow it, just don't patronize the business... it's their choice to make the rule and your choice to boycott their business.

I used to work at a convenience store and anytime someone came in with their pants hanging under their ass I made them pull them up. It's gross and disrespectful. No one wants to see your underwear and as a mother I don't want my kid seeing it and doubt anyone else wants their children seeing it.

I love this and wish ALL businesses enforced this. It is nasty to see someone walking around with their rear end hanging out. When I was a parole and probation officer I put that as one of their conditions that they could not wear saggy baggy pants!

It's disgusting to see grown men (and I've seen them in their 30's) walking around with their pants below their ass. It's not fashion, it's ignorance.

Do you think businesses are being discriminatory but not allowing saggy pants?

Would you be more likely to eat somewhere where you knew you wouldn't see someone wearing saggy pants?

What did people say when you told them to pull up their pants?  Did they argue with you or just pull them up?

If the sagging includes showing off your underwear, then YES!

Its a private business, if they want a certain dress code, so be it, it's completely fair. No one is forced to wear their pants low or eat there.
