They should not make their employees feel bad about their weight because they do not know what people are going through in their personal lives. That is discrimination unless they have a contract. When they told Cassie that she was overweight instead of saying in a rude way that they did; they could have told her that they needed her to lose a few pounds and be healthier. The way they went about it was disrespectful and rude and could have made her feel bad about herself. She could have gone into depression and possible tried to kill herself or anything.
As a result, they are put on a label like obese because they see that many people are skinny so they expect or want everyone else to look the same affecting the way they see themselves and making them think maybe I should look that way. Then again, where does our society get these

The suitors, no matter how upsetting their actions, consider themselves guests of Telemachus and his mother, which reveals that some believe even if one breaks the laws of hospitality and extends their stay long beyond their welcome, the host does not hold the right to ask them to leave.

He knows that if they feel shame, everything will go back to normal and unknowingly, the suitors will restore the ethical principle of hospitality on Ithaca. Despite all that, Telemachus’ idea does not go over well with them.
This is where the cradle- to-grave spectacle of weight fear and discrimination discreetly continues. As Marilyn Wayn points out in her dissertation, Fat Studies: An Invitation to Revolution, “employers frequently turn down promising fat applicants for not fitting the corporate image” (20). Walking inside stores such as Hollister and Forever 21 we can see that this statement reigns true.

Worley states that fat people are often excluded from social events and situations, such as the lead role in a school play and parties. This occurs because people do not want to be around fat people for the fear of embarrassing themselves (163). Psychologically, fat people can be subjected to low self-esteem, depression, and anxiety due to the way people look down on them. In the ignorance of others and pressures of society, beauty is seen in thin and toned bodies (165). Thus, rather than accepting obese people for who they are, people disgrace them in society resulting in negative psychological and social
tereotyped as. She chose the word fat because it is emotional and conveys her message. Worley appeals to her audience when she talks about the actual health risk fat people face. She explains that fat people have to struggle with people criticizing their grocery carts, judging them for what they put on their plate, and sneering at them in public.
