Borgata Babes Can’t Exceed 7% Of Their Hiring Weight

Borgata Babes Can’t Exceed 7% Of Their Hiring WeightThe Borgata Casino in Atlantic City has an eye-catching line-up of cocktail waitresses, complete with tight-fitting uniforms, stockings and high heels. Even WSOP legend Phil Ivey, whose currently involved in a multi-million dollar lawsuit with the casino, recently commented on the so-called ‘Borgata Babes’, describing how their skimpy outfits and flirty behavior impaired his judgment whilst playing baccarat at $150,000 per hand. As the Borgata mentions on its brochure:
“On a scale of 1 to 10, elevens all. She moves toward you like a movie star, her smile melting the ice in your bourbon and water.. There are no calories in eye candy.”
In fact, the casino is so proud of its Borgata Babes that each year it produces a top-selling calendar featuring many of its beautiful team members. Needless to say, the Borgata Casino has strict guidelines as to the appearance of its Babes, and one of these written rules include not gaining or losing more than 7% of their body weight when first hired.
The Borgata Casino has even enforced the rule by sacking two women, one who had put on too much weight, and another who had lost too much. This ultimately lead to 22 “Borgata Babes” filing a lawsuit against their employer for unfair treatment, and being subjected to a hostile work environment. However, the Atlantic County Superior Court judge has now ruled against their case, stating that the rules are fair, and that the women must have known what was expected of them when they decided to become Borgata Babes. As Judge Nelson Johnson stated:
“The Borgata Babe program has a sufficient level of trapping and adornments to render its participants akin to ‘sex objects’ to the Borgata’s patrons. Nevertheless, for the individual labeled a babe to become a sex object requires that person’s participation.”
Consequently, the Borgata Casino has now had accusations of discrimination and sexism dismissed by the court, and will be allowed to continue its policy of monitoring the women’s weight, and sacking them if they become too thin or fat. Commenting on the judgement, the women’s lawyer, Deborah L. Mains, said:
“It’s frustrating and disappointing. The court didn’t take the opportunity to recognize the reality of sexualizing the workplace for female employees.”
