Hospital Makes Weight Discrimination Official

To be honest, I would kind of scared to be a patient in a place that refused to hire anyone over a certain weight. If they treat would be employees with a bit of plumpness so horribly, how will they treat someone like me?

Hospital Won't Hire Obese Workers

Is it OK to discriminate against obese people?

(MoneyWatch) COMMENTARY Victoria Hospital in Texas has stated they will no longer hire anyone with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 35 or higher. To put that in perspective, that's 210 pounds for someone 5', 5".

We already are in a society where the young and good-looking are hired first while others lose out. Even those who end up jobless over a certain age, know how financially dangerous that can be.
