Man v. Hooters

A former assistant manager of an Alabama Hooters restaurant is suing his former employer for wrongful termination after blowing the whistle on a consultant who advised waitresses to spice up their service.
In his April 7 U.S. District Court complaint...the 31-year-old Gray claims that a trainer named Cat told waitresses that they were "the ones with the pussys [sic] and you are in control because of that." Then she reportedly added, "If you need the extra money, go ahead and suck a dick or fuck a customer if the money is right."
I'm relatively confident that the decision in this case will someday be referred to as "the 21st-century Lochner." Regardless, this whole mess, at the very least, kind of makes you wonder what the servers at the Acapulco Hooters we decided not to eat at a couple of weeks ago were instructed to do for that extra peso.
