Try to Not be Muslim if You Want to Work at the Waldorf

New, 11 comments

Well, here's a nasty allegation. An Arab waiter at the Waldorf-Astoria is claiming he was forced to wear name tags that said "John" instead of his given name "Mohamed" after the attacks of 9/11. After successfully filing a discrimination complaint, he was recently given another name tag that says "Edgar" back in November. Yikes, this is a pretty ugly stain on the hotel's reputation if it's all proven true. [NYP]
