Fired for the wrong reason

Melanie shaved her head in support of her sister who is fighting cancer and lost her hair to treatments.

Melanie is now without a job because of it.

She works at a hair salon as a stylist and her employer told her a stylist with a bald head frightens customers away.

They told her to wear a wig.

Melanie said what's the point of showing support for my sister if I'm wearing a wig?
They fired her.

We'll discuss as part of the Wednesday PhilCast.
