• Women AND men can have ear piercings
    I don't see why women can have gauges or ear piercings and why if you have them before being hired you can still have them at certain locations. Why can't we all have the same options?

  • Allow Colorful Hair and Tattoos at Cinemark
    Most of the employees at Cinemark are young; either in high school or college. This is a critical point in life to experiment with your appearance, but Cinemark is very conservative and allows no such thing. Many have meaningful tattoos and have to cover them up with a long sleeve shirts under their work shirt. In many cases, this makes them sweaty and tired from the extra heat, and oil and drinks splash onto the sleeves, leaving them wet. As for creative hair, more and more employers are realizing you can be professional with green or pink hair. The attitude matters, not the hair. Dress code itself is also limiting, only allowing an entirely black wardrobe down to the socks, often requiring employees to spend a decent amount of money on clothing they will only wear at work, including shoes. Freedom of expression will make employees happier and more productive at work, resulting in everyone being more satisfied all around.

  • Dress code does not define work ethic
    The dress code policy at Loves Travel Stop is outdated. They need to change their policies about hair coloration. I’ve had several employees harassed and severely upset with the corporation due to these policies. Hard workers shouldn’t lose their jobs over the color of their hair.

  • Allow Beards for Super 1 Employees!!!
    As long as the beard looks neat, clean and professional-looking, has defined chin and neck lines, doesn't exceed 2 inches in length, and people working in food preparation areas wear beard guards, there really is no reason why employees at Super 1 shouldn’t be able to have beards.

  • Ventilated Hoods For EVERYONE
    Many of our coworkers are becoming ill, overheating, and spending their time off with headaches due to the non-ventilated hoods. I have seen my co-workers continuously feeling faint/dizzy, having panic attacks, sweating profusely, and even vomiting. I’ve seen people have to leave the clean room for air because the unvented hoods are completely unbearable for the overwhelming majority of us. People are quitting their jobs over this. Those of us that are pregnant, susceptible to migraines, susceptible to vertigo, currently battling illness, etc. are at even more risk due to the implementation of non-ventilated hoods. Those of us who have no pre-existing conditions are experiencing symptoms of heat exhaustion as well. This is only day 3! What are the long term effects of working like this? What research has been done on the safety of working in these types of hoods? No one in our leadership has been able to answer these questions. It is up to us to tell them what is safe and healthy for us! We need ventilated hoods for ALL clean-room workers, starting right now! This issue is not just a matter of us being inconvenienced or slightly uncomfortable, we believe this is a human rights violation and a violation of our OSHA rights. Help me let our policy-writers know that we are NOT okay with this!

  • Let Starbuck employees wear acrylics/ paint nails
    This is important because I have spoken to many partners who feel the same way and haven’t been able to voice their feelings. It is a form of self expression and the rule has prevented many people from wanting working there. In 2019, society has very much advocated for self expression and Starbucks has good values already, but allowing this would further more support that.

  • Allow budtenders to continue to express themselves and challenge the norm of professionalism!
    As we reach a time where more radical ideas are being embraced, it begs the question why anyone's appearance (as long as health and safety are considered) would affect the quality of work they are capable of providing? It has been proven at a number of successful businesses like Google and Apple that allowing people to present themselves in a way that is comfortable to them actually improves retention of employees and produces an environment that feels open to creativity, collaboration, and trust. Most importantly, hair color, makeup, nail art, colorful accessories, and clothes have been a huge part of black, brown and queer culture. So what is it that we're saying about these people's work ethic and abilities? Why must we go so far to hinder expression? I find it odd for a company that uses the very gentrified logo of a lotus flower which often represents life, beauty, and passion to not let their employees stand out and represent their diversity. In the history of cannabis, we have seen how black and brown people in particular are negatively affected by heavy policing. One of the easiest ways of fighting against oppressive behavior is to allow workers to stand out like a lotus flower against the murky waters of monotony we often see in the work force. Though weed has a long and rich history, the industry surrounding it is anything but old-fashioned and should not be represented as such. In fact, the industry thrives because of people's constant innovations and ability to bring diversity to a plant that helps many groups. If we can agree that there is power in providing guests a choice in the way they medicate and treating them as an individual instead of just a patient, it makes sense to also give workers the power to be able to show up as an image of themselves (so long as it doesn't also impede on the health and safety of the work space). We are medicinal, we are not doctors nor pharmacists and shouldn't be forced to present ourselves as such. When we work in an environment where we acknowledge there is more than just pills as a health option, it would be ignorant of us to present ourselves as though there is only one way to be professional.
