Fat Discrimination

An essay in the NYT, For Obese People, Prejudice in Plain Sight, by Harriet Brown.

“As soon as I shook the interviewer’s hand, I knew she would not hire me […] She gave me a look of utter disdain, and made a big deal about whether we should take the stairs or ride the elevator to the room where we were going to talk. During the actual interview, she would not even look at me and kept looking to the side.”
