Recently I've been applying at a number of places in hopes of getting a job to play for this very expensive hobby of mine called bass. Everywhere I go, it seems nobody wants to hire a kid my age (17) who has long hair. My hair is a little bit past my shoulders. It is well keept and actually looks very good on me, although this is apparently not the face that they want representing their business. The more I apply at places, the more I realize nobody wants to hire me. I just don't understand why I should have to cut my hair and change myself just to get a job. To me, this is a form of discrimination. If girls have an equal oppertunity of getting hired at the same place, and they have long hair, why shouldn't I be given a chance, because obvouisly it isn't a health hazard. I guess its just outside of the accepting norm to see a guy on the other side of counter with long hair. I'm a perfectly good, hard worker. I can do the job just as well, if not better than half the idiots they have working for them anyway. I think people should be able to see beyond the stereotypes and just see a person for who they are when they are looking to employ someone. Has anybody else had problems with this?
