Georgia Salon Charges Overweight Customers More For Manicure

Should Heavier Customers Pay More For Salon Services?

It seems wrong to even suggest that your weight should determine how much you pay for a manicure, but that's exactly what one salon outside of Atlanta is accused of doing.

Customers weighing over 200 pounds were being charged $5 extra for nail services, ostensibly because larger people may damage the salon's expensive chairs. But that seems less a reason to charge extra and more a legal liability for the salon — after all, it's seating people in chairs not safe for their size. Is it fair to charge larger patrons more for salon services, or is this just clear-cut discrimination?
