Update: adult clubs to settle EEOC age-bias suit

by Walter Olson on January 17, 2011

“Two Houston adult entertainment clubs this week agreed to settle a federal age discrimination case with a former waitress who alleged younger, male managers called her ‘old’ and said she showed symptoms of memory loss. The owners of Centerfolds and Cover Girls agreed to pay $60,000 to Mary Bassi. She was 56 when she was fired in 2006 ‘without provocation or explanation,’ according to a lawsuit the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed on Bassi’s behalf.” [Houston Chronicle; earlier]

That reminds me of the time when the NY Division of Human Rights announced it was pursuing a complaint against a topless bar on behalf of a flat chested applicant. It was years ago, and I don’t recall the outcome, but they issued a news release on the absurdity.

The explained why they were letting her go but she forgot.

Old ladies stripping are out there. My friend had one on his 21st birthday. The funniest thing ever. In fact, it was in Houston so it may be her.

I have had trouble getting a job doing commercials for hair care products. I suspect they are discriminating against me because I’m bald.
