Shocking: Hooters waitresses have to buy replacement uniforms
Five current and former Hooters workers filed suit Tuesday in Sacramento County Superior Court on behalf of a proposed class of nonmanager employees in five Central Valley franchises.

The complaint claims the restaurant chain workers were improperly forced to share tips with managers and to buy their own uniforms, among other alleged wage-and-hour violations. The workers are represented by Oakland solo Burton Boltuch and Morris Baller of Oakland's Goldstein, Demchak, Baller, Borgen & Dardarian.

The complaint draws heavily from the Hooters Employee Handbook to argue that workers' uniforms and manicured appearance form a "cornerstone" of the company, and that requiring them to pay for uniforms violates California wage-and-hour laws.

"The Hooter Girls have a uniform that they are required to wear," said Baller in an interview. "What's really shocking is that while they are given most but not all of the uniform when they report to work, when they have to replace it, they are required to buy their own uniforms from the company."

This page has a picture of the uniform. It shouldn't cost much as it doesn't have much material in it:

Apparently in California, the employer has to pay for the uniforms. So they are suing Hooters in Sacramento.

When my son worked fast food, he kept getting these nasty black greasy stains on his khaki pants and I had to order more with regularity from Lands End. He got to keep his money and I had to buy his clothes so he could work. I got the worst end of that deal! LOL
