letter to employers concerning dreadlocks
dreads jobs employment issues
I recently got turned down for a job because of my dreads. It was only at KFC/Taco Bell so no big loss really, but I have a friend who works there and gave me a good reference and I have plenty experience working fast food. I went for the interview and everything and waited to receive the call to start work but it never came. About a week later my friend came over and said sorry about the job, they didn't hire you because of your hair. They are trying to hire more clean cut people. I'm not wtf? I know there are things that protect us and allow us to have dreads, but a work place can still discriminate and choose not to hire you because of them. I think its all bs to be honest.
