A city in uber-liberal Washington state is considering dress code legislation aimed at bikini baristas; the swimsuit-wearing coffee servers popular on the west coast.
In other words, Washington will soon be as bad a place to work as it is to visit.
A new crackdown on bikini baristas may be coming soon to Everett. The city council is debating two ordinances, one of which would require scantily-clad coffee makers to wear more clothes.
The city attorney says this is not about placating people who are offended by women wearing bikinis. It’s an effort to eliminate prostitution and other illegal activities the city says is common at some bikini barista stands.
As a result, the city council is considering two ordinances. One would require a dress code for what they call quick service restaurants. Specifically, workers would have to wear tank tops and shorts at a minimum.
The half-naked waitresses at Hooters, et, al? No worries. Strippers, streetwalkers, and primo hoors? Fine. What we really need to do is crack down on those awful, violent coffee servers!
