Michigan employers would be banned from discriminating against people based on how they wear their hair under legislation introduced in the state House this week. House Bill 4811, sponsored by Rep. Sarah Anthony, D-Lansing, would add language into the state’s Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act to include hair texture and protective hairstyles as “traits historically associated with race.”

Freddie Smith: I cant believe the state is wasting my tax dollars on something as dumb as this. " I wasnt going to hire you because of your haircut, but with this new bill I guess I will"" what a joke

gone cray: Some hair styles like dread locks are not discriminated against as is the hair itself can be a health hazard for some jobs especially in the food industry

Shiloh Green: Rhe same way that you're supposed to dress professional, wear your hair in a professional manner.

I agree with that. I was told back in the early nineties that if I didn't either cut my hair off or color it a different color than the fire engine red that it was, I was going to be fired from Wendy's. Ironically, the Wendy's logo girl had the exact same color as I did. I rfused to change it and they didn't do anything.
