Hooters might be infamous for the uniform it requires its waitresses to wear, but one female employee has revealed how the chain dispenses tights to its staff, and it has sparked quite a debate online.

The waitress, who goes by the handle of kenzjee on TikTok, shared a video that shows a Hooters tights machine that dispenses tights to waitresses (reportedly a mandatory part of their uniform) for the alleged price of $5 a pop.

“So people always ask me about our tights machine and I have to buy tights today, so I guess I’ll just make a video about it,” she said.

The video left many commenters wondering why Hooters was making its waitresses pay for the tights themselves, with one TikTok user writing, “It’s a company uniform, company should pay for it.. Making money from your employees is bad business..”

Another commenter added, “as a dutch guy… why do you have to pay for them if it is part of the uniform? cause in my opinion the boss should provide them for free…”

Kenzjee actually replied to this comment, clarifying, “they have to sell tights thru [sic] a third party company because tights are considered “under garments” so they can’t provide them for us”.

Others also pointed out that all of the tights were the same colour.

A third commenter wrote, “oh wow…when I worked at hooters I ripped mine every night and had to buy them from the manager”.

Another TikTok user added, “I always think it’s crazy that they make you buy tights, but then again my job makes me buy my scrubs.”

Last year, Hooters was forced to backtrack after its employees complained about its “sexist” new uniforms.

Having released a new uniform for its waitresses that included ostensibly shorter shorts, the chain said that it would allow its employees to chose which uniform they would prefer to wear after several female staff members took to social media to criticise the new clothing.
