This week, Cassandra Smith, a 20-year-old Hooters restaurant employee from Roseville, Michigan, states that during her annual evaluation on Friday, she was told that her uniform of shorts and shirt was no longer fitting properly and offered her a free gym membership to help her slim down.
She states that she was confused because she doesn’t wear the biggest uniform size that the company offers, which are small, extra small, and double extra small.
Cassie is almost 5’8” and weighs 132 pounds. For reference, according to the Metropolitan Life Tables for ideal weight for height, a woman at 5’8” with a medium frame would be considered at a healthy weight if she were between 136 and 150 pounds. Using the BMI tables, the same woman should weigh between 130 and 170 pounds to be within a healthy range.
