         London receptionist Nicola Thorp was sent home from work for apparently refusing to wear high heels.  She had arrived at the accountancy firm PwC wearing flats and was told to go home without pay unless she went out and bought heels that were between two and four inches high.

        最近伦敦金融城可不消停。起因是普华永道的一名前台 Nicola Thorp,被领导警告说“你穿平底鞋就鳖来上班。要上班就出门去买一双2-4英寸(约5~10cm)正正经经的高跟鞋!”这一下子,英国的妹纸们全炸了毛了。


"Each night we leave with swollen feet"

每晚脚肿收工


        Jordan Mae Antoinette works for a hotel in London and says all the girls on her floor have to wear high heels.

        "Our shifts are nine hours long and each night we leave with swollen feet. Some waitresses complain about knee and back problems due to being in heels for so long. It is part of our uniform and we cannot work without them." 

       在酒店工作的Jordan说,她的女同事们都必须穿高跟鞋上班。“每天工作9小时,收工的时候脚都肿了。有一些服务员抱怨说这样对她们的膝盖、背不好。但上面总是回应我们,高跟鞋是制服的一部分,上班不能不穿。”


Nine months pregnant

怀胎九月也不能幸免



Other people have left comments to say they were forced to wear high heels even though they had medical problems, or were pregnant.

       很多妹纸留言说,她们“被迫”穿上高跟鞋上班,即使生病和怀孕也不例外。(可怕)

Heidi: 我怀孕9个月的时候,因为上班没穿高跟鞋惹上了麻烦。当时我也是在一家高档酒店上班。后来听同事说,我辞职以后接手我工作的妹纸,也是因为怀孕穿平底鞋上班被谈话了。


Could we sue?

告他ya的!

So, could women made to wear them at work sue their employer? "If they set the code because they thought high heels made women look sexy, that is a case," says Lawrence Davis, director at Equal Justice Limited solicitors, "because being sexy at work is not a job requirement."

所以女性到底能不能因为被迫穿高跟鞋起诉老板? 我们来听听律师的意见:

如果用人单位是由于“女性穿高跟鞋显得更性感”,那么官司就有的打了。因为“在工作场合性感并不属于工作要求。”

(百万的吐槽:也许有人会说,穿高跟鞋更“得体”,不是“性感”,倒想反问一句平底鞋到底哪里不得体。我觉得平底鞋也很得体嘛!



如果看到这里还只是觉得上班穿高跟鞋无所谓,请看如下【高跟鞋对我们身体的危害】!
