Many people would concur that clothing standards for work shouldn’t be awkward to such an extent that they make you want to be rarely conceived. That is the exercise one lady encouraged her managers at a gambling club after they presented a fantastically prohibitive, also agonizingly difficult, clothing regulation.
Reddit client Inconvenientsilence was angry when the gambling club she worked at constrained her and other female laborers to wear high heels and “tight dresses,” with the goal that clients would give out more tips. The Redditor chose to show her supervisors a thing or two, so she wore the awkward garments for the whole move, despite the fact that her feet hurt like damnation and she drained all over the place. Long story short, her chiefs immediately took in their exercise.

The clothes were incredibly uncomfortable and were a health-hazard
Inconvenientsilence yielded her very own prosperity for her female colleagues and to commute home a significant point to her bosses. To be specific that high heels are difficult.
The gambling club that she worked at changed the clothing standard promptly when they understood how insensitive it was. Be that as it may, this came at the expense of the Redditor draining wherever in the wake of going through a large portion of a day strolling around in high heels.
Inconvenientsilence talked about what happened in more detail. When asked how her loved ones reacted to the event, she had this to say: “With the initial changes, my mother was a bit hesitant saying to wait and see what the dress is like and how there wasn’t any real need to change it at all, but the heels were a silly idea and a major health and safety hazard.”
“She told me to take flat shoes with me and not to push myself, but when I got home at about 8 AM she was horrified, saying it was ridiculous that they expect us to wear them all shift. And they clearly back-tracked when they saw my feet because they knew it meant potential problems. She was supportive but was really concerned about my injuries saying I should have listened to my coworker,s but was proud that I stood up for myself and others, my mother didn’t want me to get hurt. My mother was the one who ended up putting the bandages on [my feet] properly for a while, as she was a nurse.”
“It was about 4-5 years ago now since it happened, but I remember I couldn’t even wear comfortable flat shoes without bandages for around 3 weeks to over a month,” Inconvenientsilence revealed. “That was just with the injury to heal enough to not open from the friction. On my days off, I was either sitting because it was sore to walk or pretty much skating around in my socks when it was almost healed.”
Despite the injuries she sustained, the woman said that she would be willing to repeat what she did. “Yes I would if there is no other option or it was given on short notice. Not because of vanity reasons, but companies that expect women to wear high heels for extended periods of time is against basic health and safety for individuals and the company.”
“It can permanently damage a woman’s feet and cause unnecessary strain which could lead to further problems. When these dress codes are enforced, they do not seem to consider the individuals comfort in a busy working environment.”
“For myself, I have hypermobility syndrome in my right knee, which I grew up with, which causes my joints to dislocate (especially under pressure). Wearing heels does not help. The pain from that can last days maybe months if my knee gives way. I left that information out of my post because I felt it was irrelevant but it is a basic example of things they do not consider when implementing uniforms, and this is a minor condition, imagine if it was something more serious. Companies should look out for their employee’s comfort, health, safety, and overall well-being.”
“If I knew what I know now back then I would have definitely have joined a workforce union,” the woman said. “Also check your company policy is in line with laws and regulations regarding work where you stay, always make sure you know your rights. If they violate it, report it to your union representative.”
“Personally, I think women should not be forced to wear high heels. Heels should be optional, as long as the shoes don’t cause harm to the individuals,” Inconvenientsilence expressed her opinion. “Companies could easily say that they want their employees to have professional/smart attire without the inclusion of high heels. There are smart flat shoes available to women as well as heels, so it should be up to the individual.”
Here’s how the internet reacted to the Redditor’s story
We’ve all known about extraordinarily exacting clothing regulations at incredibly famous organizations and at political foundations. However, did you realize that there are whole nations that intently manage how individuals can and can’t dress? In these nations, neglecting to consent to guidelines can have more genuine impacts than simply being terminated from your activity.
The World Economic Forum subtleties that in North Korea, for instance, men can’t have long hair: they should trim their hair fortnightly (for example at regular intervals) to keep it 1-5 centimeters (0.39-1.97 inches) long. While North Korean ladies aren’t permitted to wear pants; gossipy tidbits express that those neglecting to consent were fined and sent to do constrained work.
Jeans are a major no-no for ladies living in Sudan too. In the interim, men in this nation are restricted from wearing make-up. Saudi Arabia disallows ladies from demonstrating any uncovered skin in broad daylight, while men are restricted from cross-dressing. Besides, Uganda is taking up arms against miniskirts, and France restricted wearing burqas and niqabs out in the open, in 2010. What’s your opinion of such exacting nation wide clothing regulations? Shouldn’t something be said about clothing regulations at work?
