what do ya all do?
so often you hear how you will never get a decent job with dreads
but i find thats not really true
i have worked in an office (IT managing web designers) ive been on the board of directors of a non profit, having meetings with politicians reporters and wealthy patrons and the elite of the arts community
i have known dreads who ran the networks for ivy league universities
doctors lawyers (mostly civil rights or constitutional law) just about every occupation
there are some who may descriminate, they need you to really sell yourself so your skills blind them to your dreads
but most are accepting with the right explanations
there are some though that are not a descriminastion issue but safety issue
in fields where dreads can represent a daner its understandable to have a requirement to not have dreads
but ..all companies must have a written no dreads plicy to restrict you from working with dreads
unless its in writting they cant deny you employment if yoiur skills are above the others.
neither can they ask you to cut
what fields are you in, did u dread before or afyter hire and how has the reactions been?
30 years growing dreadlocks the natural way
My dreads are over 10 feet long
also on the board of, and a student glider pilot with freedoms wings international - soaring for people with disabilities
