Yeah yeah, we’re supposed to be an equal opportunity country with equal opportunity employers. And while I can’t really fault a place for being so, think about this for a second. Let’s suppose you need to buy something. There are two stores that can accomplish the task equally well. They have comparable products at comparable prices. It will take the same amount of time at either store. However, Store #1 is so “equally employed” that their staff consists almost entirely of people that well.. you wouldn’t mind not looking at. On the other hand, Store #2 is full of people that are much more gentle on your eyes. Now I ask you. Where would you go?
At least once now, I’ve decided to go to Store #2 simply because I wanted to be able to look around and enjoy what I was seeing. I can’t be the only one. And since I’m not the only one, I wonder if there is any noticable impact on business because of it.
