Someone posted a recent experience at Weiland's to Downtown LA Life's Yahoo message board, and it ain't pretty. Archaic is actually the word that comes to mind. And illegal: "After dropping off his resume and talking with the manager, he was told that ' everyone here knows his place. The men work behind the bar and the women serve the food'...he was told that he couldn’t be hired 'because he was a man.' The manager went on to say ' .this is a very macho environment and men don’t serve the food.'" Smell that? No, it's not residual smoke from the wildfires. That's a lawsuit in the making.
