    You can't really do that without being accused of discrimination if its to hang out fliers. If your hiring a hooters waitress, it would be different.

    actually many discrimination laws don't apply to small business'


    hooters isn't really discriminating as they have specific job requirement, most likley outlines in the hiring packages or height weight requirements. Airlines have similar job requirements for stews (or at least they used to)

    hooters uses the fact if the employer can prove that sex, race, etc. is a "bona fide occupational qualification." and to be a hooter girl, you must at least be a girl...

    If you read my post, I said it would be different if it were for hooters. Obviously a strip club, playboy, ect would be exceptions.

    My comment was just that people would see it as discrimination, in direct response to a direct question. I understand the law is different.

    BTW, I understand why you would want attractive females passing out fliers, but really, what may be better is someone who at least has a little bit of knowledge about the industry so that they can talk to people who are out and about on flier day and sound professional.

    If that person also happened to be an attractive female, you would have one heck of a combination!

    Personally, I'm not so sure I would want to sell yard maintenance on sex appeal,
    just speaking for myself I would rather have down to earth folks doing my walking
    than anyone else, but that's just me.

    The reason being, the type of customers I'm looking to attract, in my case are the folks
    who give a rat about their yard, and not so much the guys drooling over the girl.

    Now if I operated a business that was all about sex appeal, that would be a different story.

    Yes, I would have to agree that observing this minor detail would certainly be helpful.
    How exactly food and sex appeal tie together, that I could not begin to explain.

    Cheerleading is another.
